As Brent points out, we're not really talking about concepts or technology that hasn't been available since 1998 or so. However, as with many things, it took some example to help us break out of the trap of thinking that a Web page always had to refresh completely.
This has really started to resonate with me lately. I've been reviewing some product for InfoWorld that have Web interfaces and they seem very clunky now whereas 6 months ago I accepted them as a fait accompli. I'm expecting more from Web applications now (and that will be reflected in my reviews). I think a few years from now, most Web applications will use dynamic rendering techniques as embodied in Ajax. For that to happen, however, we need better toolsets.
