In my other post, jQuery has made us lazy developers, I stated I would be starting a series of tutorials called ‘Using Only JavaScript‘ where we explore the feasibility of recreating common UI patterns and effects using core JavaScript. No JavaScript library included, not even jQuery.

This is the first tutorial in that series. We will be creating simple tabbing functionality. Whilst this is a fairly simplistic effect to achieve, it gives us a good foundation to work upon in future tutorials.

Check out the first in this tutorial series over at the Creative Jar blog.
