PACE is a JavaScript library for adding good-looking loading bars to any website with ease.

There are multiple loading effects: YouTube-like, corner indicator, page fill and more.


It requires very less effort; simply insert the JavaScript file with the selected theme and PACE works automatically for page load and ajax requests.

The library doesn’t require any JS frameworks and can, optionally, be tweaked manually.

There are various jQuery-powered solutions for creating tabs quickly and easily.

Tabslet is another alternative for the task and has support for multiple handy features.

jQuery Tabs Plugin - Tabslet

It simply converts an unordered list into a tabbed interface and has callbacks on major events (when the tab is clicked or the tab content is loaded).

Also, tabs can be rotated automatically on given intervals and their content can be displayed with an animation.

  • AnimateScroll is a simple jQuery plugin for adding easing effects to scrolling.

    It is possible to customize the style of scrolling (30+ scrolling effects) and scroll speed.


    There is also a “padding” option where we can manipulate “the position where the scrolling ends”.

    The plugin is not limited to the full body of the page but a specific wrapper element can be targeted too.

    jInvertScroll is a jQuery plugin that manipulates the default scrolling behavior and forces a horizontal scroll.

    The plugin is lightweight (<1kb) and works with almost no setup. Adding  a specific class to wrapper elements and calling a JS function i senough.

    It also eases creating parallax effects with the onScroll callback where we can decide to animate any element.
