What is AJAX?

AJAX (Asynchronous JavaScript and XML) is not a programming language but an application. It is used to create dynamic and interactive web pages by exchanging small amounts of data with the server behind the scenes.

This application allows web pages to update asynchronically by exchanging data with a web server in the background (back end). The browser does not need to reload the entire page when new information is required. This improves the user experience and makes web pages faster and more responsive.

AJAX normally uses the XMLHttpRequest object to send and receive data to and from a server. However, it uses JavaScript to manipulate the client-side page.

AJAX combines several languages and technologies such as JavaScript, XML, HTML and CSS. It improves the experience during web development and provides a better experience for the end user.
