Those hackers over at Google are at it again. Seems that they’ve created both an XPath parser and XSLT engine written completely in JavaScript. The project is called Google AJAXSLT, which is sort of a weird name, but lends itself to the belief that it will be useful (and necessary) for Ajax applications.

Apparently, this Google AJAXSLT is used to make Google Maps work on browsers that don’t support client-side XSLT such as Opera. Now, they’ve released it to open source for all the world to play with.
