Top 5 jQuery Modal Plugins
null min read

I’ve been working on a couple of prototype projects over the last month or so and inevitably I end up needing some type of modal dialog to either notify or request information to/from the user.

Historically, I’ve just been  BlockUI man, but I wondered what everyone else in the jQuery community was using for a modal dialog plugin.

So, about a week ago I tweeted a poll from PollDaddy asking what modal plugins you use.

Here are the results of the poll…

As you can see, out of the 15 jQuery Modal plugins that I polled, the community picked the following 5 to be their favorite jQuery Modal Dialog plugin…

  1. ThickBox
  2. BlockUI
  3. jQuery UI Dialog
  4. jqModal
  5. Facebox
