Can anyone please explain what Ajax is? I hear about it a lot in terms of scripting and I like the effects that can be done with it (I see it mostly with things that load without requiring the page to refresh) but is it *just* a scripting language, like CSS is?And does anyone have any tutorials on how to use it? The amount of information on it seems to be quite limited when comparing to more mainstream applications (such as HTML, although I think Ajax should be mainstream as well).
Someone told me that gmail was made in AJAX. And if i, right AJAX can be very powerful if used for mostly-text sites, email for instance. I kinda see it as the text counterpart of flex, though I'm not really sure about all this as I dont even remember the source. Maybe it was all a dream !
and these are some tutorials for beginners
