There are a lot of great effects to choose from that use jQuery and CSS3. This one in particular is neat in that you can animate your elements individually with many pre-built in options or you can create your own custom build to tailor to your needs.
These work great for home pages, sliders and any other places you may want to add animations to your website.
Some of the effects include bounce, fade, pulse, rotate, shake, swing, wobble and many more. Many of the effects also have additional options for different animations, such as rotate in or rotate in down and left.
