jExpose is a jQuery plugin that mimics MacOS’s Expose feature by adding hotspots at the browser’s viewport sides (corner and margin hotspots) which will trigger individual events by hovering them with the mouse. By default, the jExpose plugins comes with a dark transparent layer that shows up (and fills the viewport) when hovering a hotspot, almost similar to the MacOS expose effect.
- hotspots may also be either just viewport corners, or corners and margins;
- detects window resize event and refreshes hotspot locations
- detects scrolling events and refreshes hotspot locations
- hotspots may also be styled (all or for my part)
- expose-like document fading when hovering a hotspot (but may also be disabled for those who don’t need this effect and just wish to trigger the hotspots’ methods)
- extremely simple to use
- tested on IE7+, Firefox 3+, Opera 9.6+ and Safari 3+
- 8kb footprint
