Ajax-S is an ajaxed, nice looking and easy to use slideshow application.

It is similar to Eric Meyer’s S5 (another slideshow application) except a major difference, Ajax-S calls the data from a XML file rather than HTML which makes the application more portable and user-friendly for anyone without HTML knowledge.

Ajax SlideShow Script

Ajax-S accepts HTML and XHTML natively (no need for escaping any characters). Navigation of the application is pretty simple; mouse clicks, keyboard navigation bottons or the drop-down list in the application are the choices. And, we can get a printable-version with a click.

Smart List is easily configurable with different hide/show effects for items and changing pages, speed of the effects and number of the items for paging.

Besides supporting all the major modern browsers, it degrades gracefully for unsupported browsers.
