We've seen how MochiKit brings many good features that you can use for your applications today from Python into JavaScript. It also provides a number of functions that make different kinds of browser-specific programming tasks easier.

Users of web applications today demand quite a bit more from their applications than they did a few years ago. The functions that we learned about in the previous chapter help quite a bit, but there remains a large gap between those functions and the kinds of things that web applications need to do.

This chapter introduces MochiKit's functions for Ajax: timers, browser events, visual effects, and drag-and-drop. The functions on display here give your software the features and feel that they need with very little coding.
