I read the blog from Wallace What is AJAX Yes, what is AJAX and why do we want to use AJAX
- We have to use AJAX because everyone is talking about it!
- We have to use AJAX because big companies (Google, Amazo, Microsoft) are using AJAX!
- We have to use AJAX because it is faster than have a postback for each call!

The conclusion is: AJAX is still a cool name! Now, that we have the acceptance of developers and web designers we should concentrate us on the correct usage of the XmlHttpRequest object. I still get strange questions concerning the Ajax.NET library because of missing understanding how HTTP, postbacks and browsers are working.
