May I suggest adding a default preloading function to the plugin? The only problem I have with this plugin is that in the middle of the crossfade effect, I am seeing the download of the next image, (portions of the image downloaded gradually) which does not look very good. The images are about 150-250kb each. My crossfade slide is set to apx. the middle and I'm using Chrome 24 on OS X 10.6.8.
Otherwise thanks a bunch for a great plugin, it's miles beyond the others I tried.
