Zuggest — Dynamic Amazon Query

Francis Shanahan has developed Zuggest, a novel approach to searching the Amazon catalog. Simply enter your query, and Zuggest will make a call to ECS every couple of seconds and update the display accordingly.

Zuggest is an example of a so-called “Ajax” application, using a combination of asynchronous calls to ECS and direct processing of XML results to create a dynamic application which provides results “within the page”, with no need for a page refresh.
