I was referring to your Javascript argument: "I certainly won't get in your way, 
but I just don't believe we'll get there into browsers evolve into something 
"smarter" than what they are today. We went through great pains removing a ton 
of Javascript from our web sites because downloading the libraries was cutting 
response time in half - or even more on dial-up connections."

Seeing one of the biggest websites enhancing their websites with Javascript is 
some kind of a proof to me that Javascript has become a mainstream technology at 
the client-side.

I'm aware that there are only a few websites that follow RESTstyle principles. 
The main problem was that there hadn't been a real good source of information 
but since Sam and Leonard have published their book this problem has been 
mitigated at least.
I'm pretty sure that this marks a major change in the way how developers are 
going to build their web applications in the future. Anyway, time will show if 
I'm right ...
