FancyZoom in Prototype with Small Changes
Some time ago, we have featured FancyZoom which is designed to view full-size photos and images inline without requiring a separate web page load. After few months, Orderedlist rewrote it in Prototype with some small changes.
First, He didnâ€™t like that it used AJAX. FancyZoom in Prototype tends to lean towards the side of rendering everything and then showing and hiding, rather than loading stuff with AJAX.
Third, Cabelâ€™s implementation only works for images and it loads them via AJAX (to save initial page weight). He thinks that the zoom interaction is pretty interesting so he didnâ€™t want a version limited to just images. FancyZoom in Prototype supports pretty much any html you can throw in a div (images, text, flash, etc.).
Fourth, and final, is that he liked Appleâ€™s rounded corners, as opposed to the original fancy zoomâ€™s square edges.
