As Lukas wrote - SeasideAsynch is the first attempt at an Ajax solution
- based on the "old" rendering API, which still is the default one
though. A component decides which API to use by implementing
rendererClass, check references to WARenderCanvas to find components
written for the new API - I noticed that ShoreComponents are written
against the new Canvas API so I looked at that code for some hints.

Scriptaculous is the new Ajax attempt based on the Canvas API.

So in short - use Seaside2a3 with WARenderCanvas with Scriptaculous. :)

PS. I haven't yet actually used any of these.
