Top 10 Ajax Applications (Part 2)

In an earlier
post
I highlighted 10 interesting Ajax applications (plus a few honorable mentions).
Since then, I’ve come across many other individuals or teams who are all
creating a new generation of interactive, highly functional, web-based
applications. Unfortunately, some are still in stealth and, as such, I can’t
write about them (I may later, though, so check back). Either way, here’s
another batch of Ajax gems that are worth checking out.

Twelve this time, in alphabetical order:

  • Calendar: CalendarHub (via
    Scott). Create fully searchable, private or shared calendars. Includes group
    sharing, subscriptions, drag and drop GUI, RSS feeds, and web API.
  • Dictionary/Thesaurus:
    ObjectGraph Dictionary
    (via

    Jerry). Just what it sounds like…

  • Email: Zimbra (via KevinH). Complete
    application for e-mail, calendar, contacts and other communications
    technologies.
  • Email (2): Goowy. Flash based (no
    Ajax), but so elegant that I included it anyway.
  • Example code/widgets:
    The MidnightCoders
    (via MP). Variety of examples implemented in Ajax and Flash, including
    server invocation, database integration, and Google search.
  • Flickr Viewer: Lightweight Flickr
    Viewer
    (via Mike). See your Flickr photos with a different interface.
  • Games: Boggle (via Logan).
    Free and fun.
  • Games (2): Babble (via Jamie
    Tibbetts). Like Boggle but a little different.
  • Instant Messenger: Meebo Multi-client
    IM. Very nicely done—maybe I can get rid of Trillian?
  • Instant Messenger (2):
    Treehouse Chat
    (via Treehouse Cityguide). Nice Ajax chat. Less practical
    than Meebo as it doesn’t connect to existing IM servers, though.
  • To do list: TuDu (via Julien Dubois).
    Includes RSS feeds and complete source code.
  • Spell Checker:
    Garrison Locke
    (via Paul). Built by Garrison Locke. Very nicely done.
    Includes link to source code.
