After many years of creating Flash-enabled websites (and writing a lot of ActionScript), I decided to explore the use of Ajax. I had grown so accustom to developing websites where page refreshes weren’t required that I rarely created websites using HTML only. From everything that I read prior creating website using Ajax, I thought that it had the promise to replace Flash. My primary reason for exploring the use of Ajax to create websites was because, as I learned more about marketing a website (and how most search engines don’t/can’t index Flash-only sites), I decided that it was better to appear in a search engine’s listing than to have cool navigation (and animation!).
