AJAX is a rebranding of technologies introduced in Microsoft Internet Explorer (IE) several years ago. These technologies, branded by Microsoft as Dynamic HTML (DHTML) include HTML, an implementation of Cascading Style Sheets (CSS), plus the ability to manipulate a page with JavaScript through the browser's Document Object Model (DOM).
