There are so many different frameworks and toolkits, that I'm wondering which people are using and why?

* Prototype with Script.aculo.us based on Prototype 1.4.0 http://prototype.conio.net/
* Dojo 0.4 http://getahead.ltd.uk/dwr
* Direct Web Remoting (DWR) 2.0 http://getahead.ltd.uk/dwr
* Yahoo UI Library (YUI) 0.12 http://developer.yahoo.com/yui/
* Google Web Toolkit (GWT) 1.2.22 http://code.google.com/webtoolkit/
When ever a new technology comes along you always want to wait and see which are going to be winners.
It is a big investment of time and energy; there is nothing worst to find that you have spent 6 months
learning an API and find that you have bet on the wrong horse.

I'm not big on frameworks. I like Protoype because it's small, and useful and doesn't get in the way, or make me write code that is useless in any other environment.

If you are really interested, I wrote a chapter in Ajax in Practice (to be published in a few months, but available via the Manning Early Access Program) that compares some of these frameworks. See link below if interested.
