Tecker is on AJAX

Posted in by Mike Gdovin on the June 20th, 2007

Tecker‘s been hard at work (not hardly working) on improving the interface for the users. We especially needed to work with the user’s pages. After days of hard work, you can now edit your bio, name, and email address without leaving the page! This was done by using AJAX. It currently works in Firefox and Safari. We also reformed the system for non-AJAX capable browsers, which was previously a mess of several different pages. The cool AJAX system currently doesn’t work in Internet Explorer. This should be fixed soon.

Update 6/23/2007: They now work in IE 6 and 7!

We’ve taken special care with these new features to keep you informed with what’s going on and they degrade nicely in older browsers. We haven’t seen this level of AJAX integration on most sites, and we are quite proud of how they work.

You will also note a new “My Account” link in the sidebar which brings a lot of stuff together.

Check this out and tell us what you think. Here’s what we’ve been working on today (6/20/2007):
