Blogroll with a twist

4th November 2002

Spotted in my referrals today: A promising new blog, well worth checking out for the innovative “Outside Reading” panel which uses the DOM and some very funky javascript to pull in the RSS feed (via a PHP proxy) of the selected blog and load it in to a panel which appears on the left hand side. Browsers lacking in DOM support are served up standard links to the blog in question. The feature is explained in a bit more depth here.
