How does HTML_AJAX compare with the XAJAX project at Source copy?

XAJAX uses XML as a transport for data between the webpageand server, and you do not write your own JavaScript data handlers tomanipulate the data received from the server. Instead you use a .net class andbuilt in JavaScript methods, a combination that works very similar to theHTML_AJAX_Action class and haSerializer combo. XAJAX is designed for simplicityand ease of use. HTML_AJAX allows for multiple transmission types for your AJAXdata - such as urlencoding, JSON, serialization, plain text, with othersplanned, and has a system you can use to write your own serializers to meetyour specific needs. HTML_AJAX has a class to help generate JavaScript and anaction system similar to XAJAX "action pump" that allows you to avoidwriting JavaScript data handlers if you desire. But it also has the ability towrite your own data handling routines, automatically register classes andmethods using a server "proxy" script, do different types ofcallbacks including grabbing remote urls, choose between sync and asyncrequests, has iframe xmlhttprequest emulation fallback capabilities for userswith old browsers or disabled activeX, and is in active development with more featuresplanned (see the Road Map for details) HTML_AJAX has additional features suchas client pooling and priority queues for more advanced users, and even a JavaScriptutility class. Although you can use HTML_AJAX the same way you use XAJAX, theadditional features make it more robust, extensible and flexible. And it is apear package, you can use the pear installer to both install and keep it up todate. If you are asking which is better with most .net scripts it is a matterof taste and need.
