Flex vs. AJAX E-mail
Tuesday, 16 December 2008 13:16

Came across a simple comparison between Flex and AJAX in a whitepaper here.  I've heard mention of Flex flying around but this article gave a quick two-sentence introduction to what it is.  Some features that stuck out for me, of each technology:

Flex:

  • Browser-independent (like Flash, since it runs in Flash player)
  • Less code than AJAX/JavaScript

AJAX:

  • SEO friendlier
  • Better native HTML support
