Up to now I've been pretty happy with the JQGrid plugin. But it seems like they keep trying to add a bunch of stuff that 99% of the time, I just don't need. I've also noticed a decrease in performance with the last release. Especially in FF.

So I'm on the hunt for something similar but maybe lighter. I have a project I am working on and it uses a table view for a lot of pages. What I do need is the following:

Ajax support
Sortable (via ajax)
Paging (via ajax)
JSON support (but would cope with XML)

That's really about it. I don't need all the extra bells and whistles like in place editing of data, filtering, searching, bla bla. And it should be pretty easy to customize the css. Anyone have any suggestions?

I've set up my own for a number of apps. Nothing that's be easily packaged for others to use at this point though.

But, if you're not looking for bells and whistles, it's pretty easy to set up on your own to do exactly what you want and need.

I'm a big fan of jQuery plugins... but only for things I can't do better myself with the help of the jQuery core (and handful of really useful plugins like Forms).

Thanks Bear. I realize this probably isn't rocket science but I'm trying to see if something exists before I fall back to writing my own. If only to save a day of frustration. I'm kind of in a time crunch as is.

Sorry, I know of none that I would use myself.
