    How web 2.0 - tried it. I'm not sure if this site is the best way to review web 2.0 sites.

    I checked my Joomla website with rocket theme template and I've received 20% overall score :)

    OK from the start:

    1. Site criteria: No font replacement

    My opinion: This is not a web2.0 pointer - example: facebook

    2. Site criteria: no rss feed

    My opinion: Why use RSS feed if the content of your site changes once a month or two.

    3. Site criteria: jQuery

    My opinion: Hmm... and Mootools are not web2.0 material? Ajax, Json? How about other libraries?

    4. Site criteria: Flash

    My opinion: ... realy?

    5. Site criteria: search feature

    My opinion: this one is ok.

    6. Site criteria: IE6 png fix.

    My opinion: ... no comment.

    7. Site criteria: social media share buttons.

    My opinion: once again not every site is a dynamic with lots of content and updates every day.

    8. Site criteria: xml usage.

    My opinion: i have no idea if it's a good criteria or not.

    9. Site criteria: conditional stylesheets

    My opinion: small or medium quality website should not have any conditional stylesheets. But in case of Joomla engine there are conditional stylesheets but the web2.0 site says there are none... weird.

    Cheers.
