  1. On-Demand Animated GIF Player to reduce page load

    Play animated GIFs on-demand with this GIF player. No JavaScript dependencies. Initial loading of a GIF is delayed until the user starts playback manually.

  2. Simple Sweep-in News Scroller (CSS3/JS)

    I've recently been working on digital signage displays for a school (scheduled web pages displayed on 42" TV screens) so I thought I'd write a short blog post to show you the mechanics of how their news and updates are presented on the screens.

  5. RWD Cross-Fade Slideshow with Retina Images

    Want a simple, responsive cross-fading slideshow, with images that are lightweight AND retina-ready? You got it!

    Demo: http://fofwebdesign.co.uk/template/_...ideshow-js.htm

    Works in modern browsers and IE9+ (no fade effect in IE9). IE8 users just see a static image - but you can make IE8 act like IE9 with some CSS mods (see comments)
