When adding transparency styles, what is the difference between using the opacity property versus the background property with an rgba() value?

  • Opacity specifies the level of transparency of the child elements. Background with an rgba() value applies transparency to the background color only.
  • Opacity applies transparency to the background color only. Background with an rgba() value specifies the level of transparency of an element, as a whole, including its content.
  • Opacity specifies the level of transparency of an element, including its content. Background with an rgba() value applies transparency to the background color only.
  • Opacity applies transparency to the parent and child elements. Background with an rgba() value specifies the level of transparency of the parent element only.
