AWARE.JS

Make your site reader aware

Aware.js is a simple jQuery plugin that allows a site to customize and personalize the display of content based on a reader's behavior without requiring login, authentication, or any server-side processing.

Aware.js can highlight new content, insert relative bookmarks, and reflow content based on contextual triggers. It also gives access to the visitor's local time of day.
