The article from noupe.com provides the reader with 10 useful and practical ideas for using AJAX (don’t know what’s that yet?) After the “Ajaxian Revolution”, many sites started to AJAX almost without thinking. They were trying to squeeze AJAX into whatever they think was possible. This lead to memory leaks, security holes, and made them look like ***holes (even though I censored my badmouth, people can still get what I am saying. See RIAA and the homeez, you can NEVER censor the Internet!). So here are the 10 practical uses for AJAX:
- Login Forms
- Voting and Rating
- Updating With User Content
- Form Submission & Validation
- Chat Rooms And Instant Messaging
- Slicker UIs
- External Widgets
- Lightboxes instead of pop-ups
- Using AJAX With Flash
I was just thinking…the #10 usage seems pretty cool. We all know how Flash revolutionized the Internet and we also know how AJAX is revolutionizing the web today, and now if you think about mashing up these two mammoths of web, you can create a monolith!

I saw this site while I was in the hunt for creating a live AJAX page. That is, a page where it gets updated “asynchronously” by user data. The site has different workshops for AJAX applications and I found what I was looking for. Click here to see the tutorial.
Other than that, it lists many interesting tutorials including Max Kiesler’s collection of AJAX tutorials.

Screenshot of the Simile TimelineCalendars and Timelines seem to be sprouting all over the net these days. And they should be. Calendars are becoming more common as a household item for selecting dates. Timelines show the user information in an organized way that lets the user drag the change the date and time with convenience. If you want to see a really slick JS Timeline script, look at this: http://www.simile-widgets.org. These are applications made by MIT Simile Project to enhance the web with existing technologies.
