[snip]JQuery is a LOT of code to include if you're just going to do an AJAX call or two. [/snip]

jQuery 1.8 will allow you to create custom builds, including only the services that you want. That is coming out really soon. Besides, minified and gZipped....well see above.

Maybe I am biased. I am on the jQuery Developer Relations team, have authored one book on jQuery and I am currently writing another. But I think you'll love it.
