Kayak.com: Asynchronous Searching

Ajax, Tech, UI / UX Add comments

Kayak.com is a website that allows you to search for airfare and travel needs.

It has an interesting search UI.

Go ahead and do a search for a flight, and you will see that instead of the usual:

“I am searching, be back in a minute”

you get:

  • I have done x out of y
  • Here they are
  • Feel free to stop me at any time if you have enough info
  • Oh, and I am done now so here is everything

The funky changing display on the left is fun too. This is a lot nicer for me the user. I get feedback at the right time (when available), and I am engaged.
