35 Impressive Ajax and CSS Loaders / Spinners

Internet connection is getting faster day by day, but there are still some moments we need to wait for a webpage to load. Developers try their best to make this waiting time painless and fun by building creative loader.

Basically, a loader indicates that a process is going in the background and it will take a few seconds. To make sure users do go away, webmasters use unique loaders. The secret of impressive loaders lies in the interesting animation and attention to details. A few years ago, loading animation was tough and was restricted only to the GIF, but now with powerful technologies and modern browsers, you can load it with Ajax, CSS and jQuery. The spinners are highly customizable and the server provides smooth processing of the request made by user.

Below, you’ll find  35 fantastic Ajax and CSS3 loaders you can download and use in your project. They use lightweight script with alpha transparency, high configuration and resolution independent.
