10 Impressive and Free jQuery Slider Plugins

Posted in Tools, Web Design5 months ago • Written by 8 Comments

If there is one thing you need to know about jQuery plugins, it is that they are awesomely cool. And by that, I mean really, really cool. It is, as of now, the best way to flaunt your amazing images and short messages in the fastest way possible.

jQuery slider plugins evolved from their very primitive (but still alive and kicking) predecessors JPG, GIF and PNG files. Awesome web designers started tinkering a few code, thus, mixing these flat and static elements and poof!, it became a jQuery slider.

After that momentous leap, a lot of newer versions of the slider have risen from their novice status. It has been useful for web designers and developers because it marked the era of convenience, of not being forced to reload the whole page just to change the image (or use animations and Flash, which are now archaic).

Ready for these Free jQuery Slider Plugins?

For one thing, we call them sliders because we just can’t have a consistent name for it. It is popular in different terms, like carousels, gallery, rotators and promos, but they all boil down to one pot: multiple content sharing on a single page.

You are basically hitting two birds with one stone: one, being the practical and information-sending mission of your website and the other, being the artistic expression of your craft.
