It all depends again on what you are trying to do… the question needs to be more specific :)
I would probably go with the server side scripting, there is no point in complicating things :)
* One exception to go client-side with something is to reduce server burden, if you are having problems with that.
I know server side processing is slow and client-side is fast but server side processing in not depend or user browsers and settings.
and server side processing is more secure too as i read on many articles.
My question was
I must admit I don’t really get the question..
In my oppinion it’s not about "is this a better way than this.."
It’s two separate things..
As You say..
It’s not many, if any, things that really can be done with both….
that with server side scripts unless you reload the page.
and so on..
Take Google.com ..
That can totally be done without client side scripting.. but NOT without server side.
(Kind of the same problem Santa Clause has every year =) )
But WITH client side scripts aswell you can do helpful things to help the user as he types..
"lookup-possible-questions-as-user-types" for example.
So, unless I totally missunderstood this question.. it’s not a really a question about "this or that".
It totally depends on what you are trying to do.
