PTable.com offers a tabbed version. The first tab shows each element's name, symbol, atomic number and electron configuration.

The Los Alamos National Labs table says it is specifically for students. It, too, is color coded. Clicking on the table brings up history, properties and uses of each element.

PeriodicTable.com is pictorial. This periodic table displays a photo of each element directly in the table. Mousing over or clicking on an element brings up a larger version of the photo, plus photos of other forms and uses of the element. Text information accompanies the photos.
