Ajax Showcase: Amazon.com Diamond Search

Category: Ajax, Showcase

Amazon.com has put out an Ajaxian Diamond Search.

It is a very cool, visual way of narrowing down search results. There are lots of sliders and levers to drag and pull all over the shop.

It also has a nice clean way of showing the user what is going on (knowing that it is working on the server, and displaying the results).

Very cool.

Nice use of the technology while still keeping it very simple and straightforward. Kudos to amazon.

Interestingly, it doesn’t work with Firefox 1.0.4. It fails back to a regular web app, which works ok, but no Ajax.

I opened it up in Mozilla and it’s pretty cool…

Strike that… it’s a cookie issue… I wish Firefox’s cookie management settings were as good as Mozilla’s… I just want to be asked the first time for each site, is that so hard?
