1. Agile Carousel
Agile Carousel is a jQuery plugin that lets you create a super fexible carousel with advanced setting options. It supports text and images in each box and a navigator to display in which box you are. Take a look here to see it in action, it's absolutely my favourite!
2. Yahoo! UI Carousel Control
The YUI Carousel Control provides a widget for browsing among a set of like objects arrayed vertically or horizontally in an overloaded page region. The "carousel" metaphor derives from an analogy to slide carousels in the days of film photography; the Carousel Control can maintain fidelity to this metaphor by allowing a continuous, circular navigation through all of the content blocks.
jCarousel is a jQuery plugin for controlling a list of items in horizontal or vertical order. The items, which can be static HTML content or loaded with (or without) AJAX, can be scrolled back and forth (with or without animation).
4. jCarousel Lite
jCarousel Lite is a jQuery plugin that carries you on a carousel ride filled with images and HTML content. Put simply, you can navigate images and/or HTML in a carousel-style widget. It is super light weight, at about 2 KB in size, yet very flexible and customizable to fit most of our needs.
5. Simple images carousel to create Flickr-like slideshows
This tutorial illustrates how to implement a simple images carousel to create a Flickr-like slideshow using Prototype-UI framework.
iCarousel is a powerful carousel built over MooTools v1.1 fully configurable from the user just in some steps. You can change any default option just initializating the class with an object in JSON. It's tested in Internet Explorer, Firefox, Opera and Safari.
