Haven't run tests but I would guess AJAX. With ajax, you send a bit of data and only pull back the html or data that you want. The content of an iFrame has to be a fully valid HTML document.

I'd go with AJAX - it's the modern way to do things!

+1 for Ajax
I don' see any reason to do that with an iFrame
With the iFrame you're going to have DOM manipulation where you just need to receive data with Ajax.

The iFrame requires often to use an event handler and listener, but works good when is well configured.
