Sure, AJAX isn't *everything* people crack it up to be, but... it's
not useless, it's still pretty cool, it's worth integrating in a
tasteful measure... i jsut don't understand people who fall in with
either extreme on most subjects....
Ta muchly for the defence. I suppose that AJAX falls under
these recurring debates that involve tradeoffs: feature
bloat, system requirements, functionality available
(portability), Openness, and backward compatibility.
In favour of AJAX: more 'natural' interfaces, can save
time/increase productivity, etc. On the other hand,
accessibility is compromised (browser features) and
complexity of the code raised, which bad in terms of volume,
performance and access to programmers (think Windows
Vistaster if it helps).
