Little Web Things is sharing an easy to use animated countdown script. This is a skinable and an easy to integrate jQuery countdown plugin. The full example features a complete “under construction” page with PHP Backend and 2 skins: light and dark. This script is excellent if you have a product/site to launch and you want to show a timer until the launch date and also capture email addresses to keep people updated. It can also be used when you offer a product discount for a limited time and you want to show how much time is left until your offer expires.
