What is Ajax?

Ajax is a set of web development techniques. It stands for Asynchronous JavaScript and XML, and is primarily used for creating better, faster, and more interactive web applications.

It incorporates the concepts of XML, HTML, CSS, and Java Script to make these web applications. It uses XHTML for content, CSS for presentation, along with Document Object Model and JavaScript for dynamic content display.

Ajax is primarily utilized on the client-side, and can be used to send data to and retrieve data from a server asynchronously, i.e. in the background. This allows the application to run without interfering with the display and behavior of the existing page.
