    It is good idea to create this kind of technology for Ajax users. But Ben – is it really without "Flash client"? By "Flash client" I understand FlashPlayer in this case. When I look into the samples on Labs I see they are loading some SWF file so this means we must have "Flash client" installed. Anyway – really good idea!
