AJAX a Step Back?

I’m mixed on the whole AJAX thing. On one hand, AJAX is extremely cool! Some of the applications using AJAX technology are starting to feel like applications and not just web pages. On the other hand, there are so many issues with it that it’s tough to put them all into words.

AJAX is not new. All the components of technologies have existed for a while now. Yes, they have become more mature, more stable, more widely available, but they are definitely not new.

“And now, I am proud to present “SHAD!”SHower and Deodorant! You’ve used them both separately for years now, combined, they are absolutely unstoppable! Not only will you be clean but you will smell…”

…you get the idea.
