@Krinkle Krinkle Set async to true instead of "async" in ajax/script.js (prop vs. attr)
Someone confused properties and attributes.

This never actually caused any issues, thanks to the stable
enough internal boolean casting of all supported browsers, and
the fact that we remove it from the dom before any other script
could practically try to read this property.

FYI, this had been set to "async" back in the days because older FF had a problem with true (ie. it just didn't work with true). This has been fixed by now so \o/.

@jaubourg In that case a comment wouldn't have hurt 😉 (since it is sort of incorrect to assign a string value to a boolean property). From tracing it back with git-blame the entire script was introduced as a whole, and no mention anywhere in the commit-msg or code of why this was.

I did find an old forum thread.

Anyhow, passé now.

Was it when John commited the whole ajax rewrite? Anyway, yeah, I should have added a comment about this :/
