2.0.5 20/05/12. Created by Will Kelly @logicbox

simplyScroll is a jQuery plugin that can animate (scroll) a set of elements either automatically or manually, horizontally or vertically, forwards or backwards. This plugin can be performance intensive, so speed and framerate are fully configureable to accommodate lower spec systems.
