I’m learning Ruby on Rails for a personal project (hopefully announce early next month) and I’m a member of the cult now. One thing though, is they make certain AJAX effects really, really easy. For instance, to add Google Suggest-like auto-completion, it’s two lines of code.

I think it’s great that Thomas Fuchs and the RoR team could make it so easy to make interactive web apps, but at the same time I get the feeling that this will be the most over-used web cliché of 2006:
Autocomplete screengrab, which is a double tease since you can't see the image and you probably can't use autocomplete
