FancyBox: The Apple Style Lightbox

There have been many clones on the ever so popular lightbox javascript that has been a big trend for quite some time, not only because it looks nice but because it is a useful way to display information in, without opening a new window.

Many with me are admiring some of the effects that Apple uses on their websites and web services and on their main website, they are using a lightbox as well (surprise surprise). What should be no surprise either is that it looks pretty darn cool. Luckily for all of us, there is a clone for this style as well, called FancyBox (and it is free).

If you are running an Apple themed website, or you just want a classy lightbox, have a look at it. It supports both images, videos, ajax loaded and iframe content, with a 1.3 version coming soon (currently in release candidate) that supports flash better as well as many other cool features.

Do you use FancyBox? Do you have another favorite one? Let me know in the comments!
