Speeding up the reflections on my site, I started looking for alternatives.
I’ve been using Reflection.js for some time now to generate reflective category images. I did this mainly to avoid having to create the reflections by hand. However, it has always had a bit of a lag when generating the reflections. This can be a bit jarring at times, but I’ve gotten used to it.
In my search for some lightbox style scripts, I ran across Reflection.js for jQuery. The author touts that it is faster and offers a better user experience. That sounds good, but does it really work? The demo on the site sure does look faster than the original. So I uploaded the latest version and made some CSS modifications to accommodate some differences in the script. Voilà! I now have an alternative reflection generator to test.
