    These are some really fresh jQuery design examples of some really cool techniques. I’m especially partial to Isotype as it’s good to see web design technology borrowing ideas from mobile devices such as text prediction etc…

    Nice list, however, I’d recommend the 1140 grid system over the 960. http://cssgrid.net/

    Honestly, I’m still confused with how to make use of the jquery plugin. I onced had an issue with my site’s jquery and I don’t wanna disturb it again. For the future sites that I’ll be putting on, I should know jquery better.
