We are using it, since it is very easy. You can understand why ajax updatenpanels should be avoided from the following link

Also, you can use a dll, scriptreferenceprofiler, to find the ajax scripts used in a page and combine them, so that, only that script requests will be used in that specific page, which reduces the loading time. You can understand how to use it from the following msdn video.

You can download ScriptReferenceProfile from the following url

Use them as follows

Add reference to the dll.
<%@ Register Assembly="ScriptReferenceProfiler" Namespace="ScriptReferenceProfiler" TagPrefix="cc1" %>
