Yahoo!'s AJAX APIs are probably Heavy-Weight!!!

As i mentioned in the previous post, i used the Yahoo! DnD libraries in the homepage for JAnimationShop, the total size of JavaScript files to be included was around 40KB! since there are lot of packaged dependencies! So i decided not to waste the money SourceForge is spending for hosting projects by adding a DnD script of this size. Switched to another simpler and straightforward script by Mike Hall, featured on BrainJar. The script is very functional and you can find a complete article on how the script works over here. This is probably one of the best DnD scripts available, sometime back me too had started working on one but stopped it since there were lot of scripts around which are reusable!

Use it up, wear it out, make it do, or do without.
