AJAX Links

Asynchronous JavaScript + XML or AJAX is a new model for programming web sites. It uses JavaScript to call XML from a server to load data onto a page dynamically. One of my favorite sites, Gmail, uses AJAX to grab data from an e-mail server. AJAX is an interesting bit of technology but I don’t see much growth for it unless better tools are made available to develop AJAX application in. JavaScript is a decent language but I hate debugging it. It’s a pain. If Microsoft jumped on the AJAX bandwagon then maybe it could be a viable way of making sites. But do you really think they are going to abandon ASP.Net? So for now expect to see AJAX solutions only in the large site/enterprise space.
