Friday, September 29th, 2006>p>The German comparison shopping site Valoony has launched three new Ajax enabled comparison shopping mini apps: one for digital cameras, another for perfume, and — my favorite — one for wine.
The interface allows you to adjust various numerical parameters using sliders, select brands, types and specific stores, and enter search terms, etc., all of which cause the right hand content panel to update via XHR. On Joe Walker’s 4 States of Ajax Adoption, I’d say this is state #2 — Progressive Enhancement. The interface still uses IFrames and more traditional pre-Ajax techniques. Also, you can easily get into a confused application state by using the browser’s back button instead of the “Zurueck” button in the page.
