- Zoomoz.jsZoomooz is an easy-to-use jQuery plugin for making any web page element zoom. This can be a really cool effect for a portfolio website.
- ScrollramaScrollrama uses the browser scrollbar to trigger a series of animation for different section of a website. Awesome plugin for single page layout.
