Sarissa works well for me, but i'm testing my apps in IE and FF
only... And i believe the technology they now call AJAX (assyncronous
javascript and xml, but that includes xslt and other technologies
alltogheter) have a great future. Look at Google that is using that in
their new products (and i believe that google is the greates "menace"
to microsoft these days).
