Fake AJAX = Fajax. Use this for a cool transition effect

First of all this has nothing to do with AJAX. But if you paste the below TAG in your HTML, it will cause IE to use DirectX transformation to render your page. This gives a very cool and pleasing look. Almost looks like the page used AJAX because you don’t see the page being posted back.



<meta http-equiv=”Page-Exit” content=”progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.Fade(duration=.5)” />

The way I understand this works is that IE sends a request for the new page but does not clear the page you have on your screen right now. When IE has the second page ready in the buffer, it just uses DirectX to transform the image of the previous page into the image of the new page.

You can try these other effects too :


Plus, you can apply these affects at various points in your site or web pages :

meta http-equiv=”Page-Enter
meta http-equiv=”Page-Exit
meta http-equiv=”Site-Enter
meta http-equiv=”Site-Exit
