Websites which I have bookmarked over time for inspiration purpose.
Some of them are selected purely on look and feel, some have really
They are grouped in several categories but within these categories they are listed in no particular order.
- (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.
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.
The tabs lack a stylish fading transitions like the aforementioned

A good example if you want to use your tabs with some text instead of icons
Sliding Content - Transitions Everywhere
The redesigned monofactor website shows recent portfolio entries in a neat contentslider.

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
A very sleek sliding content box along with some flash particles
that are moved to the currently selected menu item, make this one a

The listing of todays websnaps built within a content slider. I’ve never seen such big buttons before =)
If you don’t look close you could believe its a flash based Website.
Content slider at the head of the page for a short introduction. The drop shadow of the font makes this one stand out.
The name says everything: big buttons, big fonts, big slider =)
Uses neat content transitions along with moving and fading menu buttons
This one looks like flash, behaves like flash, but ain’t flash.
One Page Websites and Portfolios
The following websites have one thing in common: they make heavy
(ab)use of scrolling windows, so I will not comment them any further =)
Jade Records - http://www.jedarecords.it/
Imageslider and Newsticker

Transparent Newsticker and a sleek menu
Various Effects - some of them only seen in flash until now
phpcli - http://cliframework.com/
Guess this one was featured a million time before, but time after
time again I am amazed by the small details which can be found
everywhere on the page. Check out the foliage-o-meter which controls
the density of the plants =)
Sleek transition from preview images to text if you put your mouse cursor above one of the 3 featured images.
A very sleek sidebar menu which hides if not used.
A stylish carousel that displays the latest items of this CSS Showcase
Nice mainmenu picture overlay effect on mouseover

this is a full flash site but the portfolio slider is controlled by
A heavy styled lightbox
Last but not least: a neat portfolio slider with lots of trancparencys.
