Image Preloading From CSS With jQuery
This is a jQuery plugin which enables you to preload images mentioned in CSS.
It is useful to prevent the flickering & loading period happens when an image is being loaded at rollover states, Ajax loaders, toggle effects & more.
The plugin can pull any image in the CSS independent from the folders they are placed in.
Here is a version of this image preloading script ported to Prototype.
