SmoothGallery - AJAX Script

Using mootools v1.0, this javascript gallery and slideshow system allows you to have simple and smooth (cross-fading...) image galleries, slideshows, showcases and other cool stuff on your website... Some of you might have heard of JonDesign`s SmoothSlideshow. SmoothGallery is its evolution. So, what is so cool about it ?  Unlike other systems out there, JonDesign`s SmoothGallery is designed from the ground up to be standard compliant: You can feed it from any document, using custom css selectors. And even better, this solutions is very lightweight: The javascript file is only 16kb. Why consider it instead of a Flash-based solution ? Let`s imagine you want to add a showcase of your last products, or even a showcase of one product on your homepage. Would you want to restrict it only to the users who have Flash enabled ? Another important point is the fact that using this script, you will have fully standard compliant web pages (which is important for accessibility, for example). Using a flash based solution, search engines won`t see your content nor links. Not really the expected result, right ? Oh, and do you really want to rely on a big company`s proprietary licensed app for your website ? Wow cool ! How much does it costs ? Nothing, it`s free as in beer and even better, this library is open-source, GPL licensed to be precise. On what browsers does it run ? Since it`s based on the mootools library, it`s somehow platform agnostic. I have fully tested it on: Firefox Opera Internet Explorer 6 and 7 Safari
