Tablesorter 2.0

Tablesorter can turn any standard HTML table with THEAD and TBODY tags into a sortable table without page refreshes. Tablesorter can successfully parse and sort many types of data including linked data in a cell.

Why it’s my favorite?
Easy and quick pagination, sorting of data. No complex code for pagination and sorting. Faster response since no ajax call and reloading.
