4. Impress.js – Free Zooming Alternative for web-based Slideshows

Impress.js also has some editors available that allow you to design presentations without any line of code. For example, Impressionist is one of these editors available. Using Impress you can make 2D and 3D HTML5 Slideshows for the browser.
A big advantage for programmers and developers using these solutions instead of Prezi or powerpoint is that you can always hack the code and access the source files. This gives you a way to extend its functionality. In powerpoint VBA you can also extend the functionality but it doesn’t let you access the source code. There are many other interesting alternatives to powerpoint, and JS based web slide shows, for example you can use Turn.js to make online magazines with flip book effect in HTML5. CSSS is another example of Slideshow for the web, as well as S6, Slippy, Slidy2, Slidifier, TiddlySlidy, and many others.
