Cloud Carousel is a fast and cross-browser implementation of a 3d carousel – looks very nice, more like a Flash implementation. It can create dynamic reflections underneath the carousel items, is accessible and degrades nicely without JavaScript.

There are some benefits to doing this kind of thing in JavaScript rather than Flash, not least of which is the ease of integration, small file size, SEO, and inherent degradability/accessibility. Not having another dev-tool in the workflow is another plus.


  • Works with most browsers (tested on IE6+, Firefox, Chrome, Opera, Safari).
  • Accurate 3d perspective.
  • Optional auto reflections - no need to modify your images or add server code.
  • Easy integration with basic valid HTML and a tiny bit of JavaScript.
  • Small 5Kb (minified) script..
  • Degrades gracefully with Javascript turned off.
  • Fully accessible with no CSS or text only browsers.
  • Works with other plugins, e.g. Slimbox, and preserves your links and mouse events.
  • Optional mouse wheel support as of version 1.0.2.
  • It's completely free.
