Midnight Coders whip up an Ajaxian Google

Category: Examples, Google

We blogged about the release of WebORB from the midnight coders. Now they are out and about to show us how to do the odd thing.

They built an ajaxian Google interface which has a search query text field sensitive to the user’s idle time, so as soon as you stop typing it sends out a query. It also does the same when you enter a space character or press Enter. As a result a user can do something like this: enter ‘Ajaxian’, pause, then enter a space and add ‘site’ – you will see how google ‘narrows down’ search results.

You will also see another example of the “let the user know we are going back to the server without a refresh” interface pattern, with a large wheel churning away this time.
