Is This Code Too Old?

Hey guys,

I have found this dynamic AJAX page loader that is perfect for a project that I am doing.

The only thing that's stopping me from using it is, it was last updated in December 2005 (Yikes!). I always feel uncomfortable using code that is older than 12 months.

Here's the link to the AJAX page loader in question.


If someone knows of a more up to date version of the same thing I would be extremely thankful!

Many thanks

Stu :)

That code is using some older techniques.

One alternative is to use Jquery which makes ajax calls easier to do.
