AJAX is something newer mobile browsers support, yes.
Opera, Safari and the new mobile Mozilla project will support that.

But, you're really asking the wrong person if you want hands on practical advice on that. I haven't actually done it. No doubt there are many phone browsers still out there which don't support it.

Just out of curiosity is Ajax used in mobile devices? If so have you had any experience with how well it works there? I have a project I am working on and I don't know if Ajax will solve the problem but it is critical and I would like things to update very quickly. I am just asking around to see what I might want to use in if anything in the web arena.

links..Actually, I get an error when I click on the first group and
nothing when I click on the second group.

Error is:

What is supposed to happen when you click on the branches?

It should work just like an ordinary tree view. Tab to the tree view,
hit Enter to go into forms mode (if a screen reader with forms mode is
active), and then use the tree view. Up and down arrow move from item to
item, left arrow collapses an open item, right arrow expands an item.

Even though it's a custom web widget it should still do what you expect,
e.g. read stuff like "Fish, level 3, item 3 of 4" etc.
