Their survey discusses:

The world of Ajax libs is an interesting one, as they cover various functionality.

this diagram is going to change a *lot* in coming years. i would be very surprised if a federation of disparate, independently developed tools (rails, dojo, etc) ends up being the preferred stack…not that it can’t be a high quality stack, but i suspect something with the imprint of or another open organizational body (gnu etc) is going to be deemed more palatable.

in general a desire to have a stronger language tool than javascript available for client scripting will surface. ultimately there has to be some language neutrality here to let the platform take off..every decent runtime/sysems platform, even ones like the jvm that start out as being geared to one language, end up gaining language neutrality. no matter how much hype i hear, i can’t accept javascript as the application language of the future.

Javascript is ugly.
AJAX is everything except new.

AJAX should die in the next two years.

Its is richer than HTML, but will vanish as soon as a proper language (standardization of browers, new HTML ?) will appear.
Furthermore, not accessible.
