    The lightbox effects look great on Chrome, Firefox, Safari and IE8+

    But on IE6 it causes the browser to crash or doesn’t display the slideshow at all.

    It would be great if we could just design a website and not have to worry about poorly constructed web browsers.

  3. Animated web banners included in the list are great. Finally got understanding how they are created in CSS
    Didn’t check the rest as I was interested in banners, but I am sure that they are as good as these banners
