Adding Polish To Ajax

Bill Gates can't be thrilled. Microsoft has its own framework for building Ajax-based Web apps, called Atlas. But Google and IBM got together last week with other tech vendors to support and promote the open-source Eclipse workbench for developing Web applications using Ajax. Web apps developed with Ajax don't always perform uniformly across different browsers. Now, Ajax toolkits Dojo, Rico, and Zimbra can be used inside Eclipse, and the resulting code revised and debugged there. Once finished, the code should run across Microsoft Explorer, Firefox, and Opera browsers--supposedly without a hitch.
