    I love the sequencejs slider. Definitely going to try it on my current web design project. I’ve been looking for a more CSS3 based slider and this seems like it can be it. Thanks for sharing!

    Thanks a lot! If there’s still a space for other great software I’ve used as a web developer please include Basecamp for project management/online collaboration and Time Doctor for tracking time and productivity. I am pretty sure you will also like them as I’ve tried using it for quite a while already.

  3. Lovely tools mentioned here. I actually have used Delta and Jarallax it’s quite user friendly. Thanks for this handy list:)
