Thickbox

Cody Lindley just released a brand new version of Lightbox/Greybox called Thickbox. This release offers some great, added, functionality over the other libraries. Specifically, this release is completely unobtrusive – it uses the natural href, src, and title attributes to seed the box, when it pops up. Even if you don’t have Javascript enabled, it still behaves naturally. It is also capable of dynamically loading blocks of html and displaying it in the overlay. In all, it’s a great release, not the least of which is the fact that it uses jQuery to pull it all together. So check it out, play with it, and let Cody know what you think of it!
