FauxJAX: an Ajax framework for idiots

Category: Fun

It isn’t April 1st, but it is a Friday?

Patrick Fitzgerald has announced FauxJAX an Ajax framework for idiots.

Simply use our framework to display content on your site, and we’ll do the rest.


Don’t worry about XML or JSON because our technology doesn’t even communicate with your web server! It’s that advanced!

Using our patent-pending techniques, we’ll display what is known as an “animated G I F”. This is a powerful cue to let the user know “hey, this is AJAX!”. Within seconds your site will be deluged by users from digg and, guaranteed*!

For a few thousand dollars, this technology can be yours, and for a limited time we will throw in design services with extra curved borders, gradients, and reflections. An additional ten thousand buys you some craptaculous animated effects.

Well, made me laugh. There are some warnings in that humor too – no Ajax for Ajax sake…

Wow.. not only is this an old joke retold badly, it was never a very funny joke to begin with. Guess what? There are trends in web design! Oh my god! Let’s point them out in a comical fashion! Again!
