HTMLHttpRequest v1.0beta3

This script dynamically loads remote documents for parsing and/or insertion into the current document. It uses the XMLHttpRequest browser object as well as its own custom IFRAME-based transport layer for excellent cross-browser compatibility. Files can be loaded just by clicking a link, and loads are fully multithreaded.
