CNN Beta Site

Category: Prototype, Scriptaculous, Showcase

CNN has a new beta site that plays with Prototype and for some simple clean effects and inline Ajax.

The site also uses a StorageManager to access local storage using IE-specific, DOM storage, or cookies. This way your personalization is stored away.

If you put it side by side the current site, you will find that it looks a lot cleaner (at least it does to me).

I guess to know about storagemanager, you gave a /wp-admin command!

Sweet! If they can match that up with actual unbiased news I’ll be sold!

Interesting; looks like they basically just cloned the Dojo Storage API, but threw away the Flash storage provider and tightened things up a bit.
