Protopage: Your Ajaxian Homepage

Category: Showcase

Wow. You have to check out Protopage. As Michael Mahemoff said: “So Ajaxian” :)

Once you go there, you can create your own Protopage, in which you can have fun:

  • Creating links to your favourite sites
  • Quick portlet access to search
  • Sticky notes that you can minimize
  • Personalize

A couple of interesting UI items are:

  • The large help tips, which you can turn off with a click
  • “Saving…” is shown whenever you do something that talks to the server

Great work Prototype team!

If you google for WinLike you will see something very similar. It’s a complete framework for creating a Windows like interface in a borwser.
