Re: Ajax Experimentations: Filebrowser

I agree that it's unfortunate that prototype doesn't give you an eval- oriented updater out of the box, but it shouldn't be hard to add one.

The main point of "the form stuff" is the serialize method, which can be used to ease submitting a form asynchronously. Insertions are to insert or append the result to your container, instead of replacing it.
