A new approach to web applications

This may be a bit too technical for some, but if your business or interests are somehow related to the web (and I would guess that's the case if you're reading this weblog) you should at least be aware of developments that some have labeled Ajax (Asynchronous JavaScript+CSS+DOM+XMLHttpRequest).

"Instead of loading a webpage, at the start of the session, the browser loads an Ajax engine — written in JavaScript and usually tucked away in a hidden frame. This engine is responsible for both rendering the interface the user sees and communicating with the server on the user’s behalf. The Ajax engine allows the user’s interaction with the application to happen asynchronously — independent of communication with the server. So the user is never staring at a blank browser window and an hourglass icon, waiting around for the server to do something."
