Photobox: CSS3 image gallery jQuery plugin

Photobox is a lightweight image gallery modal window script which uses CSS3 heavily for silky-smooth animations and transitions. The goal was to great an image gallery script that utilizes GPU rending instead is the 90% scripts out there which are using javascript to move things around the old fashioned way.

Benefits:

  • Both the script & CSS are only 7k each (minified script, not gziped)
  • Uses silky-smooth, hardware accelerated, CSS3 transitions and animations (for better performance)
  • Pretty UI and easy UX
  • CSS3 preloader, tailored-made. The only image you need is the arrow.png (soon even not that)
  • Works also on IE9 and above, but clearly not as nice as in normal browsers
  • Uses event-delegation on all thumbnails events
