Why would you use this over others out there? Jon thinks that:
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.
The major new features are:
- Back and forward buttons of your browser now controls the gallery. Moreover, you can send that url up there to a friend, he will see exactly the same slide on the gallery than you. This is called HistoryManager. See a demo.
- You can have multiple galleries on one place and switch between galleries. This is called Gallery Sets. See a demo.
- Tired of that smooth fade-in of pictures ? SmoothGallery now supports transitions between slides. See a demo.
- Don’t want to use all of your bandwidth for some galleries ? SmoothGallery now includes a real preloader and loads only what is needed, while giving feedback to the user on the progress (Most of the time, users won’t even see a loading bar, as SmoothGallery tries to load what the user could want to see).
