Thank for your post about Ajax level 2; I think that until all browsers do not support equally level 2, it is better not to use it for applications that are open for the public. May be, it is interesting using level 2 for backoffice apps, there where the users know that they have to use a specific browser that supports level 2.

As suggested in the article, the idea is to use the features conditionally depending if the browser supports them or not.

For instance, Gmail allows you to drag and drop files from your desktop to the browser for attaching into messages.

If you are using a browser that does not support drag and drop, nothing will happen. But if it supports drag and drop, Gmail can upload the dropped files using AJAX requests.
