Blogger Dynamic Views
A great new tool has come to Blogger.com, the much used (and of course, free) blogging tool. Viewers are now able to view Blogger blogs in five different ways: Flipcard, Mosaic, Sidebar, Snapshot and Timeslide.
This viewing method which was announced last week only works on public blogs and shows off Blogger’s usage of AJAX, HTML5 and CSS3. Using this, viewers can avoid the pain of waiting for a page to load when you click the “next page” button as there is infinite scrolling. There is also more interactivity with the blog’s content and viewers get to view a blog in their preferable way. The video below was released by Blogger as an introduction to Dynamic Views:
Currently, there a two ways to use this Dyamic Views tools.
The first way to to add “/view” to the end of any blogger url. For example: “http://randomness-speaks.blogspot.com/view” This will automatically direct users to the Dynamic Views page thus, allowing them to view the blog in five different ways.
The second way is by installing the Blogger Dynamic View Chrome Extension. Obviously, this only works if you are using Google Chrome. With this extension, the Blogger icon will appear at the end of the address bar if you come across a Blogger blog and Dynamic Views is available. This will also let you choose the way you want to view the blog instead of going to the viewing page and choosing it from there.
This is indeed a great move by Blogger. Tell us what you think of it? And will you actually make use of this viewing types or do you prefer to use to conventional way of viewing a blog?
