AJAX Evolution and Application in Magento Extensions

aheadWorks always delivers to customers the best and the most advanced technologies in its extensions and themes.  Magento is a source-consuming platform, so using AJAX technology in functional Magento extensions allows saving server resources and reduces site response time.  We have several AJAX-using modules in our portfolio (twenty, to be precise). Some of them are fully AJAX-based and the others simply include features that use AJAX technologies.

What is AJAX?

It is an abbreviation of Asynchronous JavaScript and XML.  According to Wikipedia AJAX is a group of interrelated web development techniques used on the client-side to create asynchronous web applications.

AJAX provides asynchronous updates of small pieces of web pages content. It allows avoiding excessive server bandwidth and makes updates invisible for users. Actually it updates page content without page reloads.
