Not everyone needs range sliders and they’re definitely not a typical resource in web forms. But the HTML5 spec fully supports these numeric sliders and with Rangeslider.js you can build on top of this functionality.
This awesome plugin is a free jQuery polyfill for the default HTML5 element. This means you can add the range slider into older browsers that wouldn’t normally support the feature, plus you can give it a sleek new look.
The plugin is touchscreen friendly and passes data properly to the backend. It also supports legacy browsers dating back to IE 8+ so it’s a safe choice for running these range inputs everywhere.
