How does one put together a "Myspace type widget" that are all the rage today among web 2.0 startups?
I'm 100% clueless as to the broad-strokes on something like this.
I was thinking just generate an iFrame code with the src url full of the necessary user variables, but I know there is a better way to do this.
An iframe would work well. A regular JS might work too.
It all depends on what you want to do, and if you need the script to access anything on the target page. There are cross-domain security issues, ya know, which can make certain things like this difficult.
