Fading Carousel for Bootstrap 3.3

Out of the box, bootstraps Carousel slides from one frame item to the next. This is great for traditional images or slides, but sometimes you want the same functionality, just different presentation. With this snippet, you can turn that carousel into a fade. Fade Carousels are great for things such as showing multiple testimonials.
