Showcase: Bandnews.org

Category: Showcase

Max Kiesler pointed us to Bandnews.org, a site that uses Ajax in a clean and simple way.

Bandnews is a website which aggregates music news live from the web and allows you to save your personal favorites or add new bands to track. Scout, which is the bandnews bot collects the news from official band websites and magazines so their website viewers can read all of the current news about their favorite bands on one page.

The Bandnews interface is lightning fast due to their use of XmlHttpRequests and as they say in their blog, “it allows client-server-communication while the currently loaded page remains unchanged”.

Their Ajax features include a live search, add/remove bands function, login/registration and their band directory.

In a recent email Alex of Bandnews stated, “Unlike all the hyped websites we tried to use Ajax in an intelligent and useful way”. I couldn’t agree more!
