Why? It is supported by every major browser for quite sometime and make some operations be MUCH faster (orders of magnitude), which improves user experience and saves server resources...

It is hard to develop an Ajax application that will work clear in all browsers that theoretically support Ajax. It is harder do develop a good Ajax application, for example where Back/Forward buttons is supported. Can you? Wink

We are using a Yahoo provided library that has means of ensuring support for for all browsers that support it. So this particular part of complexity we've managed to avoid.

In the places where the back/forward buttons are needed Ajax is not being used.

So is back button needed to go to previous message? I think yes... But they don't work...

In the tree view you can just click on that message in the tree or use next/prev nagivation on the same page.

Yahoo made a redesign of it's home page using Ajax (and seems Yahoo Ajax library) and officially noticed that they support only IE 6 and Firefox 1.5:

Well, Yahoo library is much more extensive then what FUDforum uses. We only use the ajax request making component, from my tests it works fine on:

opera (even on mobile devices), safari, firefox and IE 6
