eefoof is a new project that offers a user-submitted content site similar to YouTube, Google Video, AlbinoBlackSheep, etc, except we share ad revenue with content submitters. Users earn a portion of the site’s ad revenue based on how much traffic their submission(s) receives.
Ajax comes into play heavily for the media galleries on the site. The Ajax interface is designed to minimize page reloads and provide a pleasant experience to the user.
Ajax is also used extensively during content submission. When a user is uploading a file they are shown a progress indicator with bytes received / speed. One of the neat features is that when uploading an image, the user sees the image being drawn in the webpage as the server is receiving the data, live.
