The High-Performance AJAX-Comet Engine is Deployed to Provide Live Prices to Thin AJAX Clients

Lightstreamer announced that HedgeStreet.com, the USA's first government-regulated person to person online futures trading market for binary and futures contracts, has implemented web based real-time streaming prices with Lightstreamer. This streaming Ajax solution from Lightstreamer allows HedgeStreet customers to access live HedgeStreet prices via the Internet and trade from anywhere with just a simple browser, thus avoiding complications which result when downloads or plug-ins may be required.
