16 jQuery Plugins i used the most

It’s been over 2 years for me using jQuery in different web applications. In the beginning, there were not much alternatives to a plugin. In the modal box area, Thickbox was the uncrowned King. Bassistance.de ‘s validation was the only good validation plugin earlier. But now, millions have embraced jQuery and developed quite a lot of plugins. Most of them has alternatives. I requested jQuery.com to allow people post similar plugins on plugins pages so that people know in a nutshell about the available alternatives.  But it’s still not there. Anyways, I’m going to list out the plugins i used practically more frequently. Let’s see them by category.
