JS-Kit has released their latest widget this morning, Score. Score adds a thumbs up/thumbs down-style ratings widget to any page content, and then aggregates the data across the entire web site into an info box that can highlight a site's top content. It can also integrate with JS-Kit's Navigator offering, which pulls ratings data from other JS-Kit widgets into a central location. In effect, that turns any site into a walled Digg-like ratings community, where users can vote up top content that can then be highlighted by site owners.Widget provider
JS-Kit was founded in 2006 and raised $1.2 million from The Entrepreneurs' Fund 3 last August. The company now offers 5 distinct widget services for web publishers and the Navigator widget that ties them together.
A source tells us that JS-Kit is gearing up to announce a handful of major publisher partnerships in the next few weeks. These partnerships will push out JS-Kit's widgets to over 20 million new users.
Of course, because this is the only page on ReadWriteWeb that is running a Score widget, it won't have any data on which content is the highest rated site wide. But the ease of installation is what really catches the eye. JS-Kit is building a suite of tools for web publishers that are modular in nature -- pick and choose which you want to use, and they all play nice and integrate with one another via the Navigator.
