AFLAX vs. AJAX: Duelling Kitchen Cleansers

While it sounds a little like duelling kitchen cleansers, O’ReillyNet’s Tim O’Brien points out that Xamlon (here in La Jolla) is pushing AFLAX as an alternative to AJAX for doing interactive data-centric web applications. The company has redone Google Maps as an Aflax app, and it’s worth a look.
As a side note, I wrote a Aflax-ish newswire app a few months ago in a fit of programming productivity. If I can ever get the time to iron out a few of the quirks — stories periodically take off like little textual missiles — I’ll turn it from private to public access at some point.
