ColorBox: My New Favorite JavaScript Popup/Lightbox Plugin

Finally I've found the perfect tool for inline popups: ColorBox by Jack Moore. It's a jQuery plugin that works like a charm without any kind of issue, opens everything from images to galleries to iframes, and needs no configuration at all, unless you want to set some options. I'll use it in MeshCMS 4, but it's so good-looking I held my nose and edited the gallery of MeshCMS 3.5 to support it.

Another big plus is that five themes are available in the dowload, so probably everybody will find one that suit their needs. My favorite is #5: nice and does not require transparent images, so no special tricks on IE6.

Thank you Jack!
