ok true to some extent but it really depends on what needs to be done.
would u use ajax+ss pages for a complex animated intro screen that a client wanted?.

agree with you there too. but sometimes when i go to a website for a new movie or game etc. i wanna see some fancy animations and special effects/sounds and just a really interactive website.
