Hi folks,

thanks to all of you who posted links and interesting concepts.
Next weekend I'll have a first meeting with Jens Hoffmann, Rasmus  
Skjoldan and
Karsten to concretely discuss the UI and UX for TYPO3 v5.

Although I knew a few of the sites you posted (in particular I've been  
the php-ext solution a few times since the project started) I  
certainly don't
know them all and I'm especially no CSS or JS wizard who knows all the  

Therefore please keep posting your ideas and material about the topic!  
read them all and give some feedback as soon as spend some more  
thoughts on

One thing I'm especially interested in: Are there any frameworks /  
which combine the approach of php-ext or GWT with progressive  
My ideal currently is a PHP based widget library similar to QT which  
output following the progressive enhancement concepts.
