So I keep hearing all this intriguing stuff about Ajax. And I keep thinking, there's got to be something really cool I could do with it.
Basically, it could replace Flash, right? A free, fast, open alternative to Flash?
Does anybody here know enough about Ajax to comment on this?
You could replace Flash with AJAX, but you could replace flash with DHTML as well. You could even write an entire database, or even an OS, if you have enough time.
I've used XmlHttpRequest multiple times doing page updates and such. I didn't know that was all it took to be "using" AJAX. Why did they even come up with the acronym AJAX in the first place? It looks to me like some marketing gimmic. Oh well.
Okay, dumb question, and I think I might know the answer already but...
You've got it, texas al. That's just regualar client-side stuff.
