Smoooooth user interface on MyBannerMaker.com
Dec 27th, 2007 by estreet

This site has a stunningly smooth, beautiful and simple user interface.

It uses jQuery open source Javascript. Javascript runs within your browser and can query the server side without reloading the entire page. This is known as AJAX (Asynchronous JavaScript and XML).

eBay has a new Javascript showcase on sellers’ store page views. It looks like Auctiva’s flash showcase but it is really JS. eBay also uses a lot of Javascript in their new playground.  Checkout the new “Snapshot view”.  It’s a little busy though.  eBay needs to darken the background behind the popup.

Another thing www.mybannermaker.com does right is they off-load the photo hosting complexity and expense. They upload the banners they create to www.imageshack.us for hosting.

Smart, smart, smart!!!

I’m working on pulling jQuery into AuctionCritters.com. The banner creation code is complete and the user interface is next in line.
