Photobox is an Image Gallery plugin built with CSS3 & jQuery. It is beautiful and posses a great look & feel. Both the script & CSS are only 7k each. It uses silky-smooth, hardware accelerated, CSS3 transitions and animations for better performance.
It works in all major browsers including IE9 and above. But on IE the experience is not as good as other browsers because of incapability of its rendering engine. Image can be zoomed in and out with mousewheel and navigated using mousemove to move around. The bottom row of thumbnails can be navigated by mouse movment. It supports keyboard keys for navigation and closing the gallery view.
I felt Photobox that the photo loading is too slow compared to other gallery plugins.
