[geek] I stand (somewhat) corrected...

In an earlier post, I made a snotty remark about a current buzzword, AJAX. AJAX stands for Asynchronous JavaScript And XML, and is used to provide a richer user experience for web-based applications. Well, how about a desktop-flavored user interface for web applications? Check out Bindows and be (at least a little) amazed. For good or ill, they've done an excellent job of replicating the look and feel of a Windows-style user interface. A discussion of the desirability of this accomplishment has been left as an exercise for the reader. (It's slow as shit, too (or, as a friend of mine remarked this afternoon when I mentioned this, "Oh, so it's just like Java then, eh?").) [via Chris Sells...]
