Test Drive an AJAX RSS Reader

    December 20, 2005

Backbase has a whole bunch of AJAX web applications that you can test drive.

One notable entry here is their RSS Reader. It’s muy slick! Plus you can download the source code of this application and install it on your own server. While you’re on the Backbase site take a look at the AJAXy front end they tacked on to Yahoo! Search. You can really get a good sense for how AJAX technologies are revolutionizing the web as we know it.
