AntsAs you move your mouse around the page a swarming army of ants scattered about the window will chase after it. (No wisecracks about buggy code now...) If an ant actually reaches the mouse cursor, we reposition it randomly around the edge of the window, and its chase starts again. The ant images are preloaded with a great image loading bar script, then the script begins. A great effect!
To the right you will find a screenshot of
the 'Ants' script in use rather than the usual
live example. Based on the overwhelming number
of sites (200+) that were calling the ants images
from our site, we had to remove the live Ants
example and the ant images from our web server.
This will help decrease the stress on our server
and ensure that the entire internet.com
network is always accessible to you, the user.
However, you can still put this script on your site as usual. Just copy the ants source code in the box below and download the ants images zip below the screenshot. This zip file contains all the ant images.
Simply click inside the window below, use your cursor to highlight the script, and copy (type Control-c or Apple-c) the script into a new file in your text editor (such as Note Pad or Simple Text) and save (Control-s or Apple-s). The script is yours!!!
