Last few years web developers have developed many AJAX based tab interfaces which became one of the most interesting techniques giving us an easy way to provide information without the need to open and close multiple windows at the same time.
Module Tabs – Carousel (1 at a time, zero animation, external controls)
Fancy Sliding Tab Menu using script.aculo.us
The Draggable Tab widget allows tabs to be dragged (and dropped) between one or more modules
Very Cool Horizontal Tab interface from cssplay
The Closeable Tab widget allows tabs to be removed.
idTabs is simple and easy to use.not overloaded with features, it gets to the point.
Perspective tabs is a simple mootools 1.2 plug-in that allows for a larger number of tabs to fit into a small space
Tabbed style accordion script written with Moo.FX, this is my favorite
A cool Sliding effect inspired by coda site.
A similar technique can be used to implement a JQuery style fade animation that runs as the user navigates between selected tabs. While the technique I used is very similar to the one I blogged about before, I thought I would pass along the stylesheet for the JQuery tab theme as well as a quick overview of how I implemented the transition.
A method of compressing short pieces of information into six mini tabbed pages.
The information can be anything you like, as long as it fits into the drop down page size. You can, of course, increase any of the size parameters and make up your own background images to suit.
e24TabMenu is a plugin written for scriptaculous. It is a tab menu that expands collapse smoothly.
Sliding Tabs is a mootools plugin which adds a pretty neat effect. It’s a clone of something seen on Panic Software’s Coda site, which in turn is very heavily inspired by a widget used in the iTunes Music Store.
