50 Websites that make amazing use of javascript (T)

From : http://www.kriesi.at/archives/50-websites-that-make-amazing-use-of-javascript

 

Since the rise of Javascript frameworks like jQuery, Mootools and
Prototype, developers created stunning javascript solutions and effects
for their websites.

Below are 50 inspiring Websites that make good use of Javascript,
Websites which I have bookmarked over time for inspiration purpose.
Some of them are selected purely on look and feel, some have really
extraordinary Javascript functions implemented.

They are grouped in several categories but within these categories they are listed in no particular order.

Tabs
aviaryAviary - http://aviary.com/

Aviary uses very sleek tabs with a nice fading transition to give visitors a short introduction to the service. The javascript improved dropdown menu is very nice as well.

toolani

Toolani - http://www.toolani.de/

Billig telefonieren
- (translation: cheap phoning), is not the only thing this german
startup offers: the website includes very nice jQuery tabs at the
bottom of the yellow content box along with various other effects like
ajaxed form validation and a sliding login button.
podcasttuneup

Podcasttuneup - http://www.podcast-tuneup.com/

Slick tabs with an interesting slideup/slidedown motion. You should
also check the sleek transparent login form, that fades in as soon as 
you click the login button.

adworks

Adworks - http://www.adworks.ro/

The tabs lack a stylish fading transitions like the aforementioned
examples, but I really like the big icons, since they are really
begging for a click =)

wearesofa

We are Sofa - http://www.madebysofa.com/

A good example if you want to use your tabs with some text instead of icons

Sliding Content - Transitions Everywhere

Alex Buga - http://www.alexbuga.com/

Last but not least the site makes heavy use of ajax.

This one is already known by everyone and their grandmother but
always a good site to draw inspiration from, so no way this site could
be ignored.

and the text vertically. The main menu uses a stylish
