VML fireworks script

Description: This is an interesting fireworks effect with the following attributes:

  • Makes use of VML support in IE5+ to render the stars. No graphics involved.
  • Uses conditional comments of IE5+ for backwards compatibility with other browsers.
  • Colors of fireworks fully customizable.

There are a couple of disadvantages, however. The script may not run smoothly on slow-end computers, and disabling of the horizontal scrollbar on the page is required (done by script automatically).

Demo: It's all around you, all around you...
