The rumors are true: comment box-modding is now an industry.
JS-Kit has just released a new Comments widget that boasts lots of important features but is disturbingly easy to implement and use. (Seriously. Try it here.)
At no cost and with no advertising, users of JS-Kit Comments can:
* Monitor threads
* Create RSS data feeds to track comments. This also empowers search engines to index them
* Sort comments based on name, date and "karma" (based on user votes)
The feature doesn't cause laggage and comments materialize instantly, even without the whole-page twitch that typically happens when a site is over-AJAXed.
After trying out Comments we started checking out JS-Kit's other widgets. They include, Ratings, Top Rated and Polls -- all sound CRM tools with a professional veneer. Just pop the HTML into your site.
