first confrontation with AJAX

AJAX stands for Asynchronous JavaScript and XML, which is an old technique which has gotten very popular now. The best example for this is Google Suggest. The site reacts instantly to your input without reloading the page.

I have been developing web sites for very long now and I never thought that AJAX could be this powerful. But after seeing the development of it lately, I decided to give it a try. With AJAX, I wanted to reanimate my dead anime community “anime chat“. I have closed it down for over 2 years now. The Chat used to be a “palace chat“, which is very very old technology. It’s a 2D chat which could be implemented into webpages via Java, but seriously, which average person who would want to chat uses Java?
So after seeing AJAX in action, I decided to build my own chat system with AJAX. It has many advantages. All a chatter would need is Firefox or Internet Explorer. Now this is a serious advantage against any other chatting system. I started building it a week ago and it is working just fine. When it’s usable, I will post some screen shots of it.
