Should the main navigation transition run faster?

The main navigation transition looks like slow motion.

When I hover over a link on the main navigation it feels like the background transition effect takes ages, this behaviour is disturbing me, like when I'm being chased on a dream and I can barely move my legs.

• Just in case you didn't know, voting is different on meta sites. Downvotes just mean that people disagree with your proposal – Clive Jan 20 '13 at 18:22

• If it's just personal taste then I don't think it will be changed. If it bothers you enough just add a userscript to override the transition. The current CSS rule is .nav a:hover { -webkit-transition: all 0.4s ease-in; }. It would be trivial to speed that up for your own preferences – Clive Jan 20 '13 at 15:39
