Com to register it. Thanks. 2. A Technique Without a Name Now, if I had been smart, I would have given the technology a name then and there, and thus ensured my place in Web history, shutting up the client as well. After all, a name is a thing of power, and the client, not wanting to sound stupid for not knowing what the acronym meant, would have saved more than 2 hours of my life that were spent re-enacting the scene of peasants with pitch forks from the 1931 version of Frankenstein, minus the tongs.

The wide range of technologies that comprise Ajax can be a double-edged sword. On one hand, there is extreme flexibility in the tools available to the developer. On the other hand, currently Ajax applications are often sewn together in much the same way that DHTML pages were in the late 1990s. Unfortunately, although the hand-crafted approach works for furniture and monsters, it relies heavily on the skill level of Igoreh, the developer. In future chapters, it is my intention to elaborate on the various techniques that were briefly touched upon in this chapter.

Finally, I presented the three simple examples of how Ajax can be implemented. The first example, although not quite Ajax, does much to show something of the first attempts to implement a web application with the feel of a Windows application. Although it's primitive by today's standard, it is still better than 99 percent of the web pages out there today. Using the XMLHttpRequest object, the second example is dead on as to what is expected from an Ajax application. Broken are the bonds that limit updates to the unload/reload cycle that has been confronting us on the Web since Day 1.
