Expected Results:

The setup is we have an element whose opacity is animating from 1 to 0. The JS animationEnd event is being listened to for this element, and calls element.parentNode.removeChild(element) as soon as the event fires. In the latest Chrome, FF, and Opera, and IE 9 and 10, the element animates its opacity, and is removed from the DOM when it is still hidden (with opacity value of 0). In IE 11, however, after the animation finishes, the DOM node is not removed, the element returns to its pre-animation opacity value of 1, and then is removed. Thus, there is effectively a “flicker” or “flash” of the element after the animation when there should not be.
