Graceful Degradation of Ajax Sunday, May 28, 2006

Posted by VoeD in Articles, Design.

Ryan Campbell of Particletree wrote a great article on the Graceful Degradation of Ajax. While reading on Dan Cederholm's book, Bulletproof Web Design, on the degradation of web site with no support for CSS especially with the flourishing of mobile devices accessing content over the internet these days, this idea actually came up to me: Graceful Degradation for Ajax. Particletree laid down the hows and whys for this quite elegantly in the article.

Essentially, by utilising the noscript element as well as by following a graceful development cycle, such an ambition is indeed possible (for any Ajax Weblication?). This is not surprising actually, the same principles apply for CSS based designs. We start with a good structure and have all the presentation and visuals details laid down on top of the structure later on. But this paragraph hardly does justice to the article; more details can be found in the article.
