Coin Slider have lot of features that some other slider don’t have like jqFancyTransitions didn’t have at the beginning. Basically it’s a latest (and improved) version of jqFancyTransitions but with new “fancy” transitions effects. jqFancyTransitions slice your images in stripes, while Coin Slider slice them in squares. And that’s the main difference. With changing order of appearing those squares I achieve random, swirl, rain and straight effects.
