A coworker introduced me to Anthem.NET, which is an AJAX library for the ASP.NET platform. Within the last year or so, quite a few AJAX libraries have surfaced, including Microsoft’s ASP.NET AJAX (formerly known as ATLAS), and other free and commercial products. Some of these are pretty decent, while others are not even worth investigating. Anthem.NET, with it’s impressive functionality, belongs to the former group.

Some of the features of Anthem.NET include:

  • Free and open source
  • Support for .NET 1.x and 2.0
  • Seamless integration with Visual Studio 2005
  • Broad browser support (IE, Firefox, and Safari)
  • Support for Mono
  • Familiar ASP.NET postback style functionality
  • Support for ASP.NET ViewState
  • Support for web user controls

You can download Anthem.NET from SourceForge.
