Resource: Orbit – A Slick jQuery Image Slider Plugin

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. But wait! Oh snap, there is a way, and it’s called Orbit.

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.

The Orbit plugin is copyright material of ZURB…BUT, it’s also freely available for distrubition under the MIT license. Go nuts, use it for your projects, clients, freelance or fun!
