AJAX-style applications have really taken off in popularity, mainly since the use of these technologies in recent mainstream applications like Google Gmail and Google Maps. Although this technology is by no means new, the ease with which these applications can be built has increased dramatically with the release of control suites such as Dart’s LiveControls. I’ve been very impressed with the ease of use of these controls, and will be looking for ways to integrate them into my future applications.
