What Is AJAX?

Computing : Computer Applications

AJAX stands for Asynchronous JavaScript and XML.

It is a feature of browsers that allows them to send requests to the server and receive XML data on-the-fly. This means that to do something interactive there isn't the usual click then wait whilst the page is refreshed.

The technology has been around for a while but is just starting to take off now. It is predicted that there will be a big boom in AJAX and web applications as a result.

The most prominent users of the technology to date are Google - in GMail and Google Maps.

It is probably mainly due to Google that the spotlight is now on AJAX.
