This is an interesting premise for a discussion.

But I think you may be approaching the question from the wrong direction. A technology should never be chosen "just because". One of the problems with all they hype surrounding Ajax (just like with XML 5 years or so ago) is that, becasue it's "sexy", it gets shoe-horned into all sorts of things that it shouldn't have.

So your question should be less "how can we use Ajax on the Ranch", and more "how could the ability to make asynchronous requests solve usability issues and improve the user interface of the Ranch?"

Yes Bear I got your point. So I would like to confess. We should never get overwhelmed because of the hype.

So we must start our new discussion focused on the subject:

"how could the ability to make asynchronous requests solve usability issues and improve the user interface of the Ranch?"
