While there are definitly some cool aspects to AJAX, it also reminds me of the good old days of the browser wars (which seem to be back, albeit more of a Cold War). While my personal preference is to stick to simple solutions that will cause less headaches in production, sometimes you just have to do something the hard way. So far, I’ve been lucky and have found a simpler solution to the AJAX needs of my clients, but I almost didn’t once, which is when I found an article at Solitex Networks on one solution. I’m sure there are other approaches, and would love to see some comments pointing them out.
