Time to test out AJAX?
I must admit it seems AJAX is more a pattern than a specification, and its by no means clear that AJAX is anything more that a fad. It's not hard to find some interesting and contrary points of view on the web - QuirksBlog for example.
Anyway, after all that reading, I'm itching to at least go for a test drive. Have to have some playtime soon ... and after listening to this webdevradio podcast, I think I may start out with a look at phAtJAX.
