Topic: Happy Birthday Xajax!

Today is the 1 year anniversary of xajax!

The xajax project was registered with on May 24th 2005, just slightly more than 3 months after the very term "Ajax" was coined by Jesse James Garrett in his article published on February 18, 2005 at Adaptive Path.

We've come a long way since then, thanks to the great efforts of Jared White and BigBrownChunx.  We have 782 registered users in the xajax community forum, and 6200 posts in 1263 Topics since it was established in October 2005.

Xajax has been downloaded 48,318 times from The homepage gets an average of 900 visits per day.  Jared could probably fill us in on some of the forum and wiki stats...

Thanks to all of you have donated to the project and a big thanks to all of you who are using xajax and contributing feature requests, finding bugs, and helping others in the community!

We look forward to another great year as xajax continues to develop to meet your development needs.

Re: Happy Birthday Xajax!

Yay! It's a good milestone to reach, and we're very excited about the popularity of the project and the enthusiasm of you users. smile

The forums and wiki are both averaging around 500 visits a day. Not too shabby. Some other interesting statistics (from the main site):

Top two browsers:
Firefox: 56.2%
MS Internet Explorer: 30.2%

Alternative OSes:
Linux: 13.2%
Mac: 3.7%

So Firefox has already won in the developer community. Sorry, Microsoft! Also, there are a lot more Linux users than Mac users checking out xajax, which is interesting. My conclusion: we need more Mac users around here. wink
