Orbit – A Slick jQuery Image Slider Plugin

Posted · Category: Gallery, MIT License

Most jQuery image sliders hover at around 8 kbs for minified versions, and around 15kbs or more for uncompressed development files, but what if there was a way to keep the simple fades, slides, and a couple other nifty bits, but strip the bloated and corny diagonal-cross fades or spiral dissolves.

Orbit is a killer jQuery plugin that lets you create a simple, effective and beautiful slider for images of any size, and even includes some parameters for making awesome captions and a sweet timer.

    Might be nice, but the zip file download is corrupt.
    Just FYI.

    And… it doesnt work at all in IE… Which is a dealbreaker for me. On the other hand it states it works best in other brosers… :D

    Nice plugin. Thanks for sharing. Going to use it on my index page instead of hand made one. This one looks a bit more impressive! Thanks again

    It is a good slider only think i am confused about is -“when ever page loads it do not starts immediately,it takes some time to load all images and displays all image first then it starts slider with one image”.
    Am I only experiencing this or other users has also went through it.

    Like Kim pointed out, IE is having issues displaying and functioning the slider correctly.

    Works nice in chrome and Firefox though. Good effort.
