As someone who is not a huge fan of large javascript libraries, it has been difficult to find a simple cross-browser wrapper for the XMLHttpRequest object.

Most of the code I've found is too ambitious, containing the remote scripting code in a larger library of functions and objects I'd probably never use. Some solutions are more restricted, wrapping only the code responsible for calling the XMLHttpRequest object.


After searching in vain for an unobtrusive, lightweight javascript datepicker, I decided to write my own. It's flexible enough to do what I need, and doesn't take much effort to get it working.

So far I've tested it using IE 5, IE 5.5, IE 6, IE 7 beta 2, Firefox 1.0, Firefox 1.5, Opera 8, Opera 9, and Safari. Let me know if there are any issues with other browsers.
