AJAX gives software a fresh look | CNET

AJAX gives software a fresh look | CNET

Ok, one more buzz-word to learn. The noise around AJAX became so annoying that I decided to look at it, finally.

Over the years, desktop applications tied to a specific operating system have become entrenched as the main way to work on a computer. AJAX, a set of development techniques standardized over the past eight years, could change all that by bringing more sophisticated interfaces to Web applications. With that, backers are hoping it can open a crack in the dominance of desktop software like Microsoft's Office, the undisputed market leader.

Yeah, sure... now AJAX. What was beore it? I forgot already.
