These javascript plugins are the real time saver and they are well-documented and easy to implement! Sometimes, with some creativity and good design, you can use these plugins to build impressive and highly interactive websites that could win some web design awards.

In this post, I have found 10 plugins that focus on building a cool website layout. Some are built for such purposes and a few I reckon they have the potential. For me, my favourite would be QuickSand, Masonry and ScrollTo plugins. How about you?

Hi Kevin. Thanks for the great post!

I am building a website and need a lot of hover bubbles or drop down windows. Are there plugins for this or do you recommend something else?

Thanks, James Reply
