    Nivo slider is nice. I’ve used it a few times. The last one, Content 2, is also one with which I’m almost satisfied. I know a lot of people are tired of all the slider lists, especially since they seem to feature the same ones over and over, but let’s face it – sliders are insanely popular. It’s nice to keep reminding people of nice, easy solutions.

    Good roundup.

    I personally have customized the Nivo & several others for a few projects recently.

    They do come in handy.

    Really enjoyed this list thanks!

    If anybody is interested, our new site http://www.loxiastudio.com/en/

    has a total of 37 different flash/jQuery animations that are incredibly easy to integrate into a site.

    Once you have created an animation simply copy and paste the line of code that is generated into your site. It’s a simple as that.

    Let us know what you think!
