Most of the website designers now are unstoppable of exploring the world of designs and UIs. This results for bright ideas and better plans. They could come up of even more special effects that will be used by modern websites today.

Now, what I have here is a list of jQuery “Drag ‘N Drop” Plugins. It’s the same thing from dragging and dropping from desktop applications and from other applications that involves such action. I myself had tried some jQuery Drag N’ Drop Plugins and I must say that they are really cool and useful.

So here they are:

1. PPDRAG

A simple jQuery plugin that offers a typical drag n drop usage but with mainly focused on performance. What differs this from other plugins is when a user has a slow or old CPU, it stands out from performance.
