SignalR is extremely easy to use, and I’m definitely recommending it as a replacement for 90% of the .NET AJAX work I’m seeing done in the community. Take a couple minutes, download the package via NuGet and try it out for yourself. You won’t be disappointed.

Sometimes AJAX is used just to fetch certain data after the initial page has loaded to improve perceived performance, something I do quite often. Those projects wouldn't benefit from SignalR, but SignalR and its cousin Socket.IO are both awesome projects for web applications that need two-way communication.

This is a super interesting article. There are so many convenience projects coming onto the scene, it's nice to see one every now and then that is convenient AND useful.
