An AJAXWorld Look at The Rise and Rise of Enterprise AJAX and RIAs

SYS-CON Media's Diary of AJAX

Garrett, President and a founder of Adaptive Path, writes his seminal essay offering a new approach to Web applications, goes away on vacation, and comes back a week later to a mountain of e-mail from around the world asking for more details about this new way of thinking about the architecture of web applications using certain technologies like CSS, DOM, and XMLHttpRequest.

Ajax and other dynamic html technologies allow a page to change content without a reload. So Yahoo!'s mail pageviews are down and that's going to have an impact on Yahoo!'s page view growth.
