Enough with the AJAX already
Reality check one. Multiple requests mean additional resource costs to servers. Yeah, that's right. Your application is now less scalable then before, not really something you want.
Reality check two. There are in fact a lot of users in a lot of areas in the world who do not have access to high speed connections. If the site takes 15 seconds to load using a high speed connection then you've written off anyone dialing in who is going to take 4 or 5 minutes.
And another thing. Comet?. Who in the world thought this was a good idea? If you need a PUSH protocol then, oh I don't know, use a PUSH protocol. HTTP is not PUSH. Abusing HTTP does not make it PUSH either.
