Enhancing your Web Design with Sliders and Scrollers

August 13, 2009 • By

A few years back, the only way a web designer could enhance a web design with the kind of cool effects, similar to sliders and scrollers, was by using Flash. Even if you loved it or loathed it, Flash certainly filled the creativity gap that was created by the limitations of HTML, CSS and Javascript. Lately, though, with the advancement and popularity of the javascript libraries (especially with jQuery), those cool effects can be created with a lot less code, a lot less frustration and the file size is a damn sight smaller than using a Flash movie.

Just think, CSS3 and HTML5 is gaining momentum, mix these two elements in with jQuery, and quite possibly, Flash will become redundant.
