4 excellent JavaScripts for almost every website

I’ve collected some scripts that I often use for my web projects. These are some of my favorite scripts you might say.

Lazy Load (jquery_lazyload)

Lazy Load delays loading of images in long web pages. Images outside of viewport wont be loaded before user scrolls to them. This is opposite of image preloading. I really like the idea of reducing load time on web pages. Especially if you think about the mobile visitors. This script is fairly easy to setup and use. I use this script on my blog, as you might have noticed.

Retina JS (retina.js)

JavaScript and LESS helpers for rendering high-resolution image variants. I use this as well, for my little a-in-a-box-image. You’ll notice the change when visiting from a newer iPad or iPhone.

Sharrre

Make your sharing widget! Sharrre is a jQuery plugin that allows you to create nice widgets sharing for Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus (with PHP script) and more. This is what I always wanted. An option to create my own, prettier share buttons, as the original ones all differ in size and color and they kind of ruin the overall web design because of it. But thanks to Sharrre I can do what I want!

Respond.js

A fast & lightweight polyfill for min/max-width CSS3 Media Queries (for IE 6-8, and more). This fixes responsive issues for older versions of Internet Explorer, like if your website has a wide-mode for wider screens.
