jQuery Slider Plugins – An amazing transition .

Sliders are a great way to catch the website visitor attention. Having a snazzy jquery slider is a must. We have searched internet to present you a list of best free jquery slider plugins. Enjoy using them for a fantastic visitor experience.

Flux Slider

Flux slider is a CSS3 animation based image transition framework, inspired in part by the fantastic Nivo Slider jQuery plugin.

Instead of the traditional Javascript timer based animations used by jQuery, Flux utilises the newer, more powerful CSS3 animation technology. Its in a fairly early/rough state at the moment but testing on the iPhone/iPad does appear to produce much smoother animations. Desktop performance (as with Nivo) is very smooth but the use of CSS3 enables us to produce some new effects that Nivo can’t, e.g. rotations.

The aim is to use hardware acceleration where possible to improve performance on less powerful devices, such as mobiles & tablets.

This is a simple item slider with CSS animations and some jQuery. The idea was inspired by the Aplle product slider where several little items fly in with a bouncing animation.This concept is translated to a modern-looking alternative for a minimal online store design where the items represent different categories. Categories as use-case fit quite well because of the limited nature of this type of slider. For more items to be shown, this is certainly a far-from-optimal solution. If the amount of items is limited this might give an interesting little touch to the experience.

This a  creative gallery with a slider for the thumbnails. The idea is to have an expanding thumbnails area which opens once an album is chosen. The thumbnails will scroll to the end and move back to the first image. The user can scroll through the thumbnails by using the slider controls. When a thumbnail is clicked, it moves to the center and the full image preview opens. Navigating though the images will make them slide in and out from the sides, moving the underlying thumbnails container. When the preview is closed, the full image will fade back to the thumbnail.
