AJAX is becoming the new "de facto" standard in the web application industry. Every where you look on the web there are changes and on almost all sites to approach the AJAX world. Gmail and Yahoo Mail are some of the biggest web applications implementing AJAX and the results on both are amazing.
I will not mention here other problems from the CSS world for example.
Fortunately along with AJAX came a lot of frameworks and libraries that address this problem and hide the ugly details from the programmer.
In my opinion there is a worse problem then hacking your way around bugs and differences. That problem is represented by memory leaks.
Well... AJAX can mess this up. The page is not closed any more.
AJAX is still young and most of the people that have done some AJAX implementation for their site are just pulling some HTML parts from the server and using innerHTML to replace the content of a div element. No harm done. As the applications are becoming more and more complex the use case changes. XML or JSON is pulled from the server and DOM objects are created based on them. It is very easy to forget something.
