JavaScript Effects (drag/drop, animation etc)

Thinking of adding effects to your web pages using JavaScript? Jonathan Snook has comprised a list of useful ones you can use: JavaScript Effect Libraries.

Moo.fx (simple animations, small download), script.aculo.us (more powerful, has AJAX capabilities, drag/drop, visual effects, auto-complete controls) and Rico (AJAX, drag/drop, cinematic effects, behaviours). Use the Prototype JavaScript Framework, which can make developing JavaScript web applications easier. script.aculo.us is probably the most powerful. There is also a mention of Walter Zorn, whose libraries support more browsers (doesn't use Prototype, drag-and-drop works even with Netscape 4 and Internet Explorer 4).
