I just stumbled upon a neat little Web2.0 tool that lets you generate custom colored variants of the popular Ajax “working” spinning icon. All you have to do is enter front and background colors and booyah, there you have it…
… transparent backgrounds are also an option, which is epic 😉
And here’s where you can find that nice utility:
A well-known technical limitation of Ajax is the inability to update the URL in the Browser’s address bar without having to reload the whole page. While this is basically a good idea (imagine the phishing opportunities by pretending my site’s URL is apple.com), there are some Web2.0 use cases where this may be quite useful.
Today, I extended my jsAnimation stuff (mentioned earlier) to be able to interact with ajax calls. The result looks great and the whole thing feels really powerful from a development point of view (check it out by clicking “Recently dugg” on the right side of my blog).
