Ajax keeps your webpages dynamic instead of static. It helps with the function of web browsing and is one of the reasons that are able to communicate effectively over the vast distances that the internet can cross. It makes your life easier and that helps everyone out.
1. Allows WebPages to Reload Just the Necessary Sections
I know that this is something that I take for granted on a daily basis. For that reason, I often find myself struggling with my email, preferring to keep it open rather than closing it and reopening it every time I need to check it. As a result, I use Ajax without even realizing it. Every time my desktop notification goes off I just turn to the webpage with my email and I see it at the top of the list. My page just refreshed the parts of my page that needed to be refreshed and I didn’t have to click that button in the corner.
2. Ajax Is Not A Programming Language.
3. It Allows You to Play Video Games in Real Time over the Internet
It’s hard to think about how video games work. I’m talking about how they connect with the internet and auto update. When playing a video game on the internet, especially an MMORPG (Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game) this allows the environment to react without having to refresh every time something changed on the screen. This allows games to be played in real time and gives us all the gaming experience that we have come to love and enjoy. I look forward to playing games after I finish this article in fact.
4. Email Got A Lot Easier With Ajax
I’ve mentioned this in a previous section, but I can’t make this clear enough. Instant messaging and email became faster and more reliable with the introduction of Ajax Technologies. This instant server communication allowed for the webpage to refresh without being told that it needed to. This allows the server to send a command to refresh just the inbox to allow for the email to constantly update as new emails come in. If you’re anything like me, you can really appreciate this feature of AJAX.
AJAX may seem like just a simple little group of programs, but it is something that is constantly being improved on and something that makes a huge difference in our modern use of the internet. It has helped shape our society. That makes our life easier and allows for nearly instant communication between computers and the computers can now recognize the changes occur without physically refreshing the entire page.
