Ajax − Asynchronous JavaScript and XML

Interesting write-up about a technique they call ‘Ajax’, which is :

  • – standards-based presentation using XHTML and CSS;
  • – dynamic display and interaction using the Document Object Model;
  • – data interchange and manipulation using XML and XSLT;
  • – asynchronous data retrieval using XMLHttpRequest;
  • and JavaScript binding everything together.

Think of GMail, Google Maps, Google Suggest, Flickr. A technique I have used myself a couple of times over the last few years, although not for a complete app, but some parts of it.
Read it at Adaptive Path.
And have a look at my ajax resource page.
