Searching for Ajax in 2001 on Google

Ajax search for Google at 10

When Dylan told me about the idea to resurrect an old index as part of the 10 year old birthday festivities, I thought it was very cool indeed.

They found one, and you can search on it here. Vanity searches are fun, and Ajax returns very different results :)

    Nice website, Dion. I had no idea you were ever so young.

    And great use of Comic Sans. We could really use more of that in Web2.0.

    If you search on Remote Scripting or XMLHTTP, you’ll see where the Ajax field was at the time.

    I love that the “unofficial Ajax homepage” is “Lynx enhanced”!! You had to make that up!
