Well, it”s true that i still haven”t seen everything, but this must be the first time I see MS officialy state that UpdatePanels aren”t really that good when you want to build a slick efficient AJAX page. if you still think i”m wrong when i  say that you should only use UpdatePanels if you”re lazy or if you don”t have the time to “rebuild” your page, the watch this.

    well, if you watch the first 20 mins, you”ll see Jeff saying that updatepanels are good, but aren”t great if you really want to have a performant ajax web app (which is why i don”t like the updatepanel very much; i mean, it”s really cool to see that they”ve managed to build a control which “ajaxes” a page in seconds, but when you”re building ajax pages, you should really need to learn javascript and do most things on the client).
