I liked Nifty Corners but as anyone who has used it knows, it has its limitations. Originally it didn't attempt to create anti-aliased corners, but it is now in its third version. It makes a better attempt at killing the jaggies this time around, but only fakes it -and as a result- looks only marginally better. I would like to say though, that the actual code behind it is exceptional and the creators skills far surpass mine. My solution is a different kind of solution entirely, so it's like comparing apples and oranges.
There's also the popular ThrashBox. I like Ryan, he's a nice guy and the Thrashbox is a very creative solution. But... It requires 2 to 4 images, and in many cases you will need VERY large images to ensure your page layout doesn't break the boxes. View the bottom of Ryans page for an example of this problem.
Now in its second version, Spiffy Corners finally has selectable radii. I kept the options fairly trimmed down with only 3, 5 and 9 pixels as any larger and the markup gets unbarable to look at. I've also added in a color picker to make faster work of chosing a color if you don't know the exact colors you're after.
I plan on writing a tutorial on how I created it for all those interested in learning a bit O' php, so check back soon.
