If you’re into Web Development, chances are you’ve used Ajax on a few occasions. For those of you who haven't heard about this exciting and relatively new technology, let me give you a quick low down. Ajax is all the rage in Webapplication Development. It is such an exciting technology that it’s already found use in Google’s most popular applications, such as Gmail and Google Maps. What’s it all about?
