jQuery Effects: Slide, Fade, and Animate
I have created excellent CSS-based animation effects using jQuery. This includes sliding elements up and down/into and out of view, fading elements in and out, and performing custom animations of other CSS properties.
For the sliding effects (and the fading effects we'll cover next), you can provide either the argument 'slow', which is equivalent to 600ms, no argument which is equal to 400ms, or 'fast' which is equivalent to 200ms. You can also specify a custom time length by providing the number of milliseconds you'd like the effect/animation to take.
Here's a functional demo of sliding up, sliding down, and toggling sliding:
