AJAX threatening Windows?



Long ago there was talk about the desktop not meaning anything anymore and that software would be delivered through the web. Well, it looks as though AJAX has brought that closer to reality. Wired news takes a look at where things are in the arena. Explains what Ajax is and what makes it so meaningful. ( Google Maps is one site that uses “AJAX”).


The whole idea is that web pages are now being designed that use Asynchronous Javascript and XML (AJAX) and can deal with information differently than what we’ve seen in the past. The google maps page for instance doesn’t need to reload or refresh to let you drag the map around the page. Additionally this “platform” for software is supported under many browsers, many operating systems. Google Maps for instance can be used on Mac, Linux or Windows with no usability failings.

Interesting article, makes you wonder what’s next. Google online Office suite?
