Trexy Version 2 - No AJAX?? - Shock Horror!

AJAX is a not-so-new-really way of updating a web page with Javascript - our sister search engine, Turbo10 used Javascript extensively on the client-side for topic clustering, results buffering and fast presentation - and all this in the pre-AJAXian dark ages - circa 2003!

AJAX is useful for things like google maps but I have rarely seen it used well in other places. So, "shock horror" there will be no AJAX in the next release of Trexy!

I hope this means we qualify as definitely NOT "Web 2.0" - Phew! ;-)

Most of the key ideas behind Trexy come from 1945 not 2005.
