BreadCrumbs Advanced Plus

bcrumbsplus(150x150)BreadCrumbs Advanced Plus for Joomla! 1.5, 2.5 en 3.0 is a module which replaces the default breadcrumbs module from the Joomla! installation. It supports all default breadcrumbs options but with several extras.

With the Advanced Plus module you can use animated styles for the breadcrumbs when a user hovers the mouse over them. The animations are fully compatible with the MooTools verions used in Joomla! 1.5 and 2.5.
And for the Joomla! 3.0 version there's even an extra Roller effect added when the mouse hovers above a breadcrumb.

Ofcourse you can use the default Joomla! breadcrumbs style too with the extra options of this module.

To give you an impression of the animated breadcrumbs UWiX created two little demonstration movies:
