Fresco is a jQuery lightbox plugin. Unlike most lightbox, Fresco is the first truly responsive lightbox. There are many responsive websites around, Fresco can fit in them easily as it will resize itself based on screen size.

Personally, I think Fresco is a nice looking modal window (simple but elegant), along with its built-in thumbnail view and support of responsive layout, no doubt, it can be easily be the best lightbox available now. However, this isn't an open source plugin, however you can use Fresco light version on non-commercial domain with pro features disabled.
