Hi Pete,

I recently listened to an excellent presentation by Jeremy Keith  
called 'Explaining Ajax' which covers all of this very well. Check it  
out at http://adactio.com/articles/1238/ if you're interested; there  
is an audio recording, transcript, and the slides that he used  
available. He mentions a few sites which utilise ajax, including  
http://newshutch.com (an online newsfeed reader) and http://meebo.com  
(instant messaging from within your browser) which is more like an  
application than a website. Another couple that I use which spring to  
mind are http://last.fm and http://upcoming.org which both have ajax
