Using Comet, developers have the ability to stream data to and from the browser, instead of communication done thru series of call backs between the browser and the server. Seems like a slick idea, but if you have not used JSON before (basically a Java based XML language) you are in for a slight learning curve. Lingr.com is a great example of an easy use …
