Presenting an AJAX News Ticker - TENewsTicker

a . Works only in firefox for now , if firefox throws error follow the steps below :
b.1. about:config
b.2. search for signed.applets.codebase_principal_support , set to true
b.3. restart firefox

You may be able to see the ticker live in action at the top of this very blog . As the name suggests, ive compiled a finished version of this ticker which you free to include in your blogs, sites ,etc . Heres another of the little tricks Ive been upto .

What does a AJAX based News ticker do anyway?
Using AJAX to asynchronously display the news feeds .In this case ,ive wrapped a nice interface to allow you to set the delay time , the topic as well as pause / continue the auto change feature. The TechEnclave one in particular goes through the RSS feeds of ,an Indian based technology forum that I am associated with .

What do I need to do to add this TechEnclave News Ticker to my blog / site ?!
Just add the following single line to your site / blog /web page under the tags.
<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript" src=""/>

Do you have any suggestions, feedback for the developer ? Do you want a news ticker for your own blog/site?
If so, feel free to drop me a comment here, or mail me . bosky101 at

Ive also been trying to make this a Firefox extension ,through GreaseMonkey . Anyone with experience with it ,if you can assist me ,i'd appreciate it a great deal to get things done faster.
