This is a mootools lightbox
jQuery Tools sir!
Great post man. Very useful tools!
Have you heard of anyone doing a lightbox with page tabs across the top to show html or pdf, etc. I would love to get my hands on some code that would do that…
Try out TopUp:

Fancy Model is just “Marvelous”, I really like it, it really cool and modifiable according to conditions. Also the design pattern is really marvelous.
Thanks for this plugin.
Now this is an actually useful resource chris, unlike many other ‘duplicate design inspiration’ blogs that keep popping up everyday with the same websites/designs i have seen before.
Fancybox worked for me.
Nice work. Thanks for sharing.
Wow, the best collections. Many thanks. Cheers.

Thank you !!! my favorite is facebox !!!!
There is a mistake for the fancybox, it can display ajax :
“Can display images, inline, ajax and iframed content”
Oh nice post. I don’t see SlimBox on here, it’s basically lightbox enhanced, meaning it will work on horizontal websites and fixes the scrolling issue with lightbox. Perhaps you could take a look at it you have to google the Jquery version btw.
I really like the lightbox jquery plugin, that’s what i use on my site.
I like the piroBox, I have a client who is looking for something like this so thanks for the post!
