    Question DiggSpy = AJAX?

    How did di gg make this?

    http://www.****.com/spy

    (go to di gg.com/spy without the spaces, sorry b/c the bad word filter)

    It updates in real-time. Wouldn't that KILL bandwidth even if AJAX were used?

    I tried looking through the source code, I couldn't find any evidence of AJAX.

    Does anyone know how this is done? Is it bandwidth-intensive?

    They're probably using Comet or some similar technique.
