    Lightbulb Demo of Ultra-Fast e-Store (Client-Side only)

    Hi guys!

    Need Feedback & Comments on my RIA-like demo of
    Client-Side only e-Store (without any server-side dynamics like apache/php/mysql etc.)

    How To Do this you can read in my article

    Thanks!

    I like it. It's very simple to use and lightening fast. It was working fine on Linux Mint 10 using Google Chrome 7.0.517.44.

    Very nice clean looking site. One thing though. Is there a reason for building this in JS? More and more ppl are opting to turn off JS in their browsers, as I do sometimes, which means you site is unusable.

    teedoff,

    a reason for building this in JS
    Speed. You'll never make tradinional model (server-side generating html) works like a client-side implementation.

    Hmm, any stats?

    which means you site is unusable
    It's not a replacement of traditional model. It's an additional Layer. It's easy to determine js-off or modern browser using by a visitor.

    No I dont have concrete stats, but if its were only 2%, thats 2% possibly that you cant market your product too. Not to mention that most PDA's and cell phones dont support JS at all.

    In the shceme of things the miniscule amount of speed garnered from a client-side based site isnt worth it to me, since all my revenue is ecommerce based.

    The standard practice today is to design sites that work without JS, but add JS to enhance the user experience.

    You asked for feedback and comments on your site, which is all I was doing. My opinion is just like anyone else's, but in the end if you want to build a site the way you want it, then thats your choice. Doesn't make it anymore wrong than how someone else would do it.

    Again, nice site either way!
