One thing you might want to consider is looking at using a headless
browser like 'celerity' for testing your ajax code. This is quite a
bit more involved for initial setup than using RSpec but will give you
browser. There are quite a few people on this list who are doing this,
using the 'progressive enhancement' pattern to build a version of
behaviour when the page loads.
I'm not doing this myself in earnest, so I'll say no more, but
hopefully a couple of other people will chime in with some advice.
