There has been so much talk in the news about AJAX these days. It is strange, I have heard that AJAX is the Microsoft Killer, the new technology, or the wave of the future. I personally think that it is a great method of using technology to speed up a web application and also extend the usability.
It is hard for me to view AJAX as the next big thing. I think because the concept and idea has been around for a long time. Until someone coined AJAX, I don’t think people knew how to describe it or even where or why to use it.
