Did a search on Hijax and found a link to the slides from Jeremy Keith's presentation at XTech 2006. Here's a nice quote from the presentation slides:

Benefits of Hijax

  • No need to spend time and resources building a non-Ajax version.
  • No duplication of logic (e.g. form validation).
  • Keeps your application logic on the server.
  • Keeps your JavaScript file size down.
  • Links are spiderable and potentially bookmarkable.
