Generally, we have to select for jQuery plugins or MooTools, but there are many, which are compabible with both frameworks, like Revolver.
Revolver slider allows you to customize it to great extent, where you can select from various types of transitions to slide different contents and add external control buttons. The documentation is well written, which requires less than 5 Kb; so it’s a superb tool for sure.
Day by day, more and more jQuery plugins are being introduced with extensive support for using CSS3 and HTML5 and Sequence is one of the best examples of such jQuery plugins.
Sequence enables us to give the effects to the content we want to use and moves between different transitions in a pretty style using CSS3. The way it performs is far better than ordinary plugins. Also, it supports all major browsers and is fully customizable; so I would recommend it fully.
jQuery Easy Slides is a simple, smart and one of the simplest jQuery plugins for creating slideshows. You can get most out of it by integrating images with the text content. Easy Slides shows an image for a while and then moves to the next image. I found it very quick and easy in implementation.

You can use it to display your photo albums as a slider, where the user will select any album from the stock of beautiful images. Moreover, you can put images creating random display with some slick animations.

Slides features a number of built-in options, which include the possibility of looping , auto-play , fade/slide transitional effects, preloading, crossfading , randomize display, hoverpause, pause/play, pagination, automatic and many more.
