Example #11: change the banner randomly in an interval loop

Given that you have a method which selects any element from the current jQuery set randomly,
$.fn.random = function(){ return this.eq(
  Math.floor(Math.random()*this.length)) }
then you can use that to build a banner rotator very easily.

In this example there are four different banners. Every 5 seconds another one fades in, randomly chosen.

As we don't want to wait for the animations finishing we use the original version of .fadeIn() and .fadeOut() here.

$('#banners > *').hide().repeat(5000,true)

Some banner text?
some more text here

Some other cool stuff?
this is other text

Even different text
this is new text

cheaper, cheaper, cheaper…
