1. Enhanced User Experience
AJAX allows for the serial updating of web pages through the exchange of a small amount of data with the server. This means that parts of the web page can be updated without the need to reload the entire page. AJAX increases the performance of browsers and facilitates quicker browsing speed thus offering an enhanced user experience.
2. Improved User Productivity
The AJAX library has object-oriented helper functions that enhance productivity. A correctly configured ASP.NET application will have its business layer and data access layer. The ASP.NET application even includes an UI layer where the server-side operations are undertaken. If these features are already included, AJAX requires just an additional layer of AJAX-specific services and some enhancement on client features. This translates to a reduction in the deployment costs and enhances user productivity.
3. Enhanced Compatibility
AJAX is compatible with PHP, J2EE, ASP.NET, and many other languages. It supports nearly all the major browsers including Opera 7.6 and above, Apple Safari 1.2 and above, Mozilla Firefox 1.0 and above, and Internet Explorer 5 and above.
4. It Supports Asynchronous Processing
Asynchronous data processing is possible through XmlHttpRequest, which is the backbone of AJAX applications. Requests are thus handled more efficiently while dynamic content loading achieves higher height by considerably improving the performance.
5. Easier Navigation
To allow for easier transition between web pages to users, AJAX applications can be built as opposed to using the traditional back and forward buttons on web browsers.
6. Increased Speed and Reduced Bandwidth Usage
AJAX allows for several multi-purpose applications as well as features to be handled using a single page, which eliminates the need for clutter with several web pages.
AJAX is amazing technology. If you would like to enjoy the benefits it offers, you should consider using it on your website/web pages. Try it today and experience the difference.
