wanted to know what people think of ajax... as a star shining in the future or a star waning
It has its uses, but (like every other "new" technology we've had on the web) the vast majority of what it is being used for now is abuse and totally inappropriate.
Google Maps is a great example of a website that makes fantastic use of Ajax to deliver a rich user experience that you just couldn't achieve without it. On the other hand, far too many people are using Ajax for tasks that can and should be achieved with good ol' plain and simple HTML, and there's no reason or excuse for doing that.
Ajax. Just say no.
there are many cool features built around ajax. telerik, componentart,.. are some to mention.
as long as they keep innovating i guess there would be demand.
I'm excited to see what websockets will play in the future, and how we might use less ajax. Maybe that shining star of the future is not ajax.
