Web 2.0 App Roundup
September 19, 2005
Shacknews has a nice listing of new AJAX-enabled web 2.0 apps.
What’s an “AJAX enabled web 2.0 app”, you ask? Well, usually it’s a web-based application that acts a lot like it’s a program running on your local machine — just without any installing or updating or having to be on a specific machine to use it. AJAX is mostly just a fancy way of making a lot of interactive stuff happen without having to constantly reload the page (think GMail for example.)
Included in the list are integrated IM apps, word processors, group calendars and schedulers, plus even a recipe search system (type in your ingredients, get a recipe.)
Check it out.
