That's actually pretty nice. I was just talking to someone about doing tabular data entry using AJAX. The grid in your link looks like it could be slightly modified and used for that very purpose. That would be pretty interesting. It brings you one step closer to replacing a desktop application.

There are some commercial DHTML Datagrids out there already that are quite powerful and Rico's DataGrid also allows you to asynchronously fetch records. However, sometimes (read: most of the time) it's just better to find a more web-friendly way of showing records, either through pagination or by fetching only one or two columns, then let them click on a row to bring up a detail view using AJAX. I have an application that loads over 2000 records in a table using 1 column and it both renders very fast and the time to send it to the user is also more than acceptable (the Apache server uses mod_deflate, Lighttpd has a similar module). The Datagrids have some drawbacks, such as the inability to use your scrollwheel on the table itself and rather disappointing crossbrowser issues.
