I was thinking of writing an application that would have very minimal page reloads by relying heavily on AJAX and DOM manipulation to cause page UI changes. I'm just trying to get a feel here on how developers approach this (since I'm new to this platform). Surely AJAX wouldn't be this prevalent if it's so easily rendered useless.
Can I get opinions/comments from experienced and expert developers out there on this subject? Because I'm sure you folks went through this stage I'm going through at one time or another, and I'm interested in your thoughts/insights.
