Javascript has been around for many years now. But with the explosive introduction of fantastic new frameworks like jQuery, MooTools and Prototype, there are some amazingly creative designers & developers out there that still find new and exciting ways to use it.

Here’s a list of five really great jQuery-powered sites I’ve seen recently. Feel free to leave a comment and let us know what other amazing sites you’ve seen around the web.

Don’t let the simplicity fool you, load this one up and play with the window size. Prepare to be amazed.

Great, big image slider on this one. And yes, it gets bigger when you enlarge the window. Way cool.
