dirkhaim of tinyways took Paul’s original code and built it out into a full fledged WordPress plugin with configurable options.
Autopagerize adds infinite scroll functionality to hundreds of websites, including Google, Yahoo, Blogger, and Twitter. It was written by Japanese hacker swdyh with inspiration and ideas from ma.la. I strongly recommend you check it out. Naturally you’ll need the Firefox extension Greasemonkey in order for it to work.
If you’re not a greasemonkey type of person, you can install the AutoPager firefox extension.
If you’re an IE user, please get yourself a better browser and I’ll think about forgiving you..
Here is the history as far as I’ve seen it:
- 2005 June 23 – Ma.La releases the Google Auto Pager greasemonkey script.
- 2005 June 28 – Bill Scott releases Rico LiveGrid and writes “Death To Paging!”
- 2006 April 25 – Humanized Reader launches with “Infinite History”
- 2006 September 14(ish) – Yahoo Mail (beta) utilizes the same LiveGrid technology
- 2006 September 17 – Microsoft’s Live.com Image Search includes infinite scroll.
- 2006 October 31 – Peter Forde writes Endless Pageless and releases a Rails plugin
- 2007 April 17 – swdyh releases AutoPagerize greasemonkey script, enabling infinite scroll for nearly every site.
- 2008 June 29 – infinite-scroll.com debuts with initial release of wordpress plugin
* Google Reader uses the same preloading LiveGrid technology. Anyone know when this debuted?
