Ryan Stewart, new Adobe evangelist (sweet), is looking for sexy AJAX applications. You know, the ones that look like Flash:
So where are other sexy Ajax applications? Iâ€™m not talking about Gmail or even Google Calendar, Iâ€™m talking about applications you could mistake for Flash, the kinds of applications even *I* canâ€™t help but admire (even if they could be built faster with Flash and Flex 😉 ).
What’s the point? Ryan, we all know that beauty is on the inside. The only time Flash impresses me is when someone uses it in an invisible way. sIFR, Google Finance & dojo Storage come to mind.
If we want to point to successful AJAX applications, why exclude GMail, Google Calendar, Zimbra, and Highrise?
Confucius says – Everything has its beauty, but not everyone sees it.
