Almost everything will now do MXHR.

Have a look at Web::Hippie which abstracts the browser-specifics of  
the actual mechanism away.

However, each user is going to have a persistent connection to the  
server, and if you're running a traditional forked server (e.g. fcgi,  
mod_perl etc) then that can eat a lot of resources for keeping  
(mostly idle) HTTP connections open..
