Hyperlink 2.0 - Ajax Page Transitions

This script is sooo Web 2.0(it is so Web 2.0 that I think that it is really Web 2.5). It works perfectly if there is no javascript(Graceful degradation). As a matter of fact, it works better if there is no javascript. Can you think of another Ajax app that works better if there no javascript? I can't think of one - this script is the first in that area.


When a user clicks on a link, this script finds which page linked and then load that page using AJAX internally. Then it takes the contents of the <body> tag and replace the contents of the body tag of the current page with the new content. Thus we render the new page - without changing the URL.


See the code for hyperlink 2.0(JS File).

This script uses the JSL Library and the getElementsByClassName function.


Just in case that there is anything wrong with your sarcasm detectors, let me make myself very clear. Do not use this method. I just provided this sample to make fun of the overuse/abuse of ajax we are seeing on the web. The main reasons why you should not use this script are given below...
