How to ask politely the user

When working on a project, you often have to ask the user for information: choice, confirmation, etc. There are a few ways to achieve this: plain old confirm(), prompt(), or fancy dialog boxes (jQueryUI for example), or "inline" stuff.

After having tested Producteev for a while, I found out that I really like the "inline" way. So I decided to do it this way on my current project. I needed an easy, unobtrusive way of asking the user for confirmation. I didn't want to spend hours developing or debugging it, so I came out with this simple plugin: Fast Confirm. It allows you to ask simply and politely the user, without throwing a modal dialog box  in his face. Also, it clearly identifies the source of the confirmation so that there is no doubt what you're talking about.

As usual, there is a tiny demo page to show you how the plugin behaves on a simple use case. Feel free to try it out, download and play with it!
