I am working on a commerical website and they are using AJAX technology. It is really amazing. JavaScript is having more scope in the near future. Can someone tell me what are the limitation or disadvantages of AJAX?

JavaScript disabled is the answer you need.

The major disadvantage I see is that, because it's a hot buzz-word in the industry, a lot of people are using it inappropriately in lieue of solid web application structure rather than as an important tool to add to web applications.

I don't really see the fact that people can turn off Javascript as a disadvantage of the technology per se -- if they turn off Javascript, they can't use the application. Simple enough.

Yes, you can do so many fancy things playing with DOM. I'm reading Ajax in Action, and I've realized how hard it is to make something clean. It can soon become a real mess if you don't know what you're doing.
