How about bringing the ajax-functionality to some more browsers? Dojo is a javascript toolkit with lot's of functions, including the '' API. With this API you can make AJAX requests. The API uses iframes and forms for cross-browser functionality and incorporates back-and-forth functionality and bookmarking.


  • It's so damn big though!
  • Oh boy, iframes!
  • *gets plate and bib
  • im pretty sure this adium style uses dojo
  • @giginger: "... are built on top of a lightweight packaging system, so you never have to figure out which order to request script files in again. Dojo's package system and optional build tools help you develop quickly and optimize transparently. " Dojo isn't big if you don't want it too be big. You only have to include the packages you need. And what's wrong with iframes? In my experiments with dojo, it all worked very fast.
  • I find Dojo a bit of a pig. Had several users complain about the speed issues until I removed it from a project. Sometimes the cool, feature-rich way just isn't better than the simple way.
  • @T22:

    I should read more carefully in future :)
  • Blah! I'm dropping dojo. No more dojo. DigitaLink, I found out too. Dojo is a pig. Sorry guys to be bothering you with a pig around here. Forget about dojo. Frustations.
