AHAH vs AJAX
One of the best thing about the hype created by AJAX was the reaction of other developers. Of course, there are individuals they are willing to build an alternative for every hype which is usually considered as a rip-off of the original hyped programming. Such programs frequently fail even before it gets started. For example, just look at different web-based office applications since zoho.com made a mark. Though lots of alternatives are available, almost none came even close.
