So many times I have seen and heard people speak of AJAX like it were a programming language. I have heard people who know nothing about computer programming, and I have heard programmers say it. It seemed like for a few years everyone was talking about AJAX, and I guess to some point people still are. Perhaps now people are just taking it for granted.
So for instance document.getElementById(“myHeadline”).innerHTML = “New Heading” would change the “The Headline” to “New Heading”. The ability to alter there elements without contacting the server was useful but it didn’t have much power.
