Microsoft Doloto

Those who have built rich, highly interactive, Ajax applications, tools like these are surely a boon. As we know, next generation interactive web applications are built primarily using XHTML, JavaScript, CSS. Number and size of these files grow rapidly as the application grows. This is where tools like Doloto comes in handy.

Microsoft research has put up a new tool called "Doloto" to tune the download performance of these files especially JavaScript. This tool profiles the application, converts the method calls into stubs, and as these are actually called, downloads them. This allows large applications to not download full files before it can even start and does a lazy download. If you are a developer who builds highly interactive, rich, Ajax based applications, check this tool out.
