14 Best Ajax Scripts to use for any website

Hello All, Today i have compiled a list of best ajax scripts that are available on the web, Ajax stands for Asynchronous JavaScript + XML is a group of interrelated web development techniques used on the client-side to create interactive web applications. With Ajax, web applications can retrieve data from the server asynchronously in the background without interfering with the display and behavior of the existing page. The use of Ajax techniques has led to an increase in interactive or dynamic interfaces on web pages. Data is usually retrieved using the XMLHttpRequest object.
