a JavaScript implementation of HTML5 <input type=range> for Firefox

html5slider is a polyfill that:

  • transforms all <input type=range> elements from plain textboxes to draggable sliders on-the-fly automatically,
  • supports min, max, step, oninput, and onchange,
  • and is the only polyfill that provides native styling for the slider widgets.

Firefox 23 added built-in support for this widget, so this polyfill only applies to Firefox 16 - 22.

To use html5slider, simply reference html5slider.js in your page as an external script. For example: <script src="html5slider.js"></script>
