My likings to these online fabulous tools are based on
- Number of customization options
- and finally how good the result looks like
Ok so lets go ahead and check them out
First on the list is preloaders.net
This is the best tool available to generate animated ajax loading GIFs
http://preloaders.net gives you all the options I guess, that you need to create a good looking ajax loader. Its simple to create an animated GIF
- Pick a Category
- Select you preloader
- Customize it and
- Hit that big blue button “Generate preloader” and then you are able to download it.
Second on the list is ajaxload.info
Not as advanced as preloader tool but its simple slick and works. Not many options to play with but what you see is what you get. Its a great tool if you don’t understand the options available from my first choice.
I recommend to take this tool for a spin. I am 100% sure that you will find it quite useful in long run.
Third on the list is cssload.net
This online tool has less customization options than what you see in preloaders tool but if you are time savvy nerd and want something that is CSS only and you like what you saw in the templates window as shown below
then its the fastest of all tools to generate a animated ajax loader but the catch is that its CSS only and rely on native CSS animation (transition capabilities), The best thing about this tool is that its got a live preview i.e. what ever changes you are making to your spinner you can see them all happening right in front of your eyes so there are no surprises at the end when you are ready to download the CSS code for your spinner.
Please note that your Spinner will not work on older browsers that don’t support CSS3
Other tools such as http://loadinfo.net/ could be useful too, it all depends on what you are trying your final animation to look like
Of all the tools that I’ve tried to create an ajax spinner preloaders.net is the best online tool, not because It has great customization options but also its simple, slick and it just works. I hope that you will be with me on this one after you used all of the mentioned online tools.
I think the above 3 are the top ajax loaders I have used, I do not use cssload.net because of its lack of support across all browsers. If you’ve used any other then it would be awesome if you can tell us all via your comments
