Suckerfish HoverLightbox.


The Suckerfish HoverLightbox is a super cool piece of AJAX tech from Jon Christopher, above and beyond Lightbox JS which is cool enough itself. Basically it’s an image gallery application which shows thumbnails and exploded images in place on the webpage via Javascript love and goodness. Go try it out.

 Being that Suckerfish, Hoverbox, and Lighbox were all written in an organized and straightforward fashion, combining them was fairly simple. I left the JavaScript files controlling the Suckerfish and Lightbox separate for organizational sake, and also used a separate stylesheet to control the Suckerfish and Lightbox style.


  • It’s Javascript, not AJAX bro. Not everything with LOLZ PRETTY MOVIN PIECES is Ajax.

  • Oops, my bad! :-p
