Time for a roundup for all the jQuery plugins that have been on the wild for a few weeks. There are getting more and more jQuery plugins coming out just to meet your special needs. In this post, I particularly like Sausage contextual pagination, I think it’s a brilliant ideas!
Here you go, pretty sure some of them will be really useful.

The plugin uses absolute positioning calculated from the original css and offset to either the closest positioned parent or to the document. The plugin has been tested in IE6-9 and all the other major browsers.
