jQuery Masonry has become quite popular in the last 12 months because of the possibility it offers for creating more interesting web layouts and in particluar portfolio style sites
Masonry is a dynamic grid layout plugin for jQuery. Think of it as the flip-side of CSS floats. Whereas floating arranges elements horizontally then vertically, Masonry arranges elements vertically, positioning each element in the next open spot in the grid. The result minimizes vertical gaps between elements of varying height, just like a mason fitting stones in a wall.
