Yahoo! Mail is supposed to be a good example, but I would probably have
stuck with Gmail and Flickr for my examples. In fact a lot of Google stuff
with AJAX is nice, like Google Reader, Google Calendar, etc.

The problem with AJAX is that a lot of sites seem to thing it is an end to a
means, rather than a means to an end. The best AJAX is that which you don't
really notice, but makes you think "hey, that's cool". In my opinion
