7. Control.Tabs jQuery


It creates a tabbed interface from an unordered list of links/anchors that point to any elements on your page that have an id attribute. Since it attaches these behaviors to HTML that already has semantic meaning, it will degrade gracefully for browsers that do not support JavaScript, and are search engine friendly.

8. Circular Motion Effect with jQuery
