We look at a lot of Ajax applications, and we have seen a lot of trends over the last couple of years.
In general we are maturing, but as complexity has gone up in Ajax applications we are seeing one scary trend.
Unfortunately, we are starting to see Ajax applications that look more like Flash web pages:
- <head><title>My Ajax App</title>
- <body onload="startupApp()">
The entire application is in JS that generates HTML to be embedded. If it wasn’t for Firebug and friends we would have no idea what was going on. Debugging this is a nightmare. Doesn’t it look like Flash pages with an embed/object pair of tags only?
