Web2.0 has spread its tentacles to capture everyone's attention and has made many big companies
rethink or rephrase their existence. Ajax
, since its incarnation, has created ripples making custom application developers think the unthinkable. Ajax today has taken form of everything and anything in the internet world and turning out to become the defacto standard for any internet company today.
Today Ajax sends out server requests to every small action made over the web browser and everytime this happens only a tiny chunk of information is updated in the database, thus increasing
the traffic and load many folds. With so many people accessing your application there is every chance that your server can hang up. If you have started googling on this, wait, a database on the client side can be apt for such a context.
With Web2.0 leading the internet marathon
there is lot of evolution's expected. One such thing has been idea of developing a secure browser based client database which can store information that can be queried runtime. The idea put in simple words means provide a tiny, in-memory, small memory foot print, relational and stable database as an integral entity of the web browser. Thus, redefining the existing web browser for the next generation applications.
Tomorrow's applications must transform themselves to be next generation by being lot more useful. Data corresponding to each application can be shared and sync'd seamlessly providing more scope for collaboration. Offline clients can be easily built with zero extra effort. Numbering each use case can run into any big number possible.
+Thinking deep, this idea can empower any living application with a soul. Are you searching for one!
