The Pros and Cons of Using Ajax

AjaxObject Oriented ProgrammingProgramming

Ajax is a set of web development techniques using many web technologies on the client-side to create asynchronous web applications. With Ajax, web applications can send and retrieve data from a server asynchronously without interfering with the display and behavior of the existing page.

Any other technology Ajax also has its own pros and cons. Let's look at some of those.

Pros

  • Allows applications to render without data and fill data as the application gets it from the server.

  • Gives platform independence to application developers

  • Faster page renders

  • More responsive applications

  • No rerenders of whole pages are needed to update only a single area.

Cons

  • Any user whose browser does not support JavaScript or XMLHttpRequest, or has this functionality disabled, will not be able to properly use pages that depend on Ajax.

  • Multiple server requests need more data consumed at the client-side.

  • Failure of any one request can fail the load of the whole page.

  • Browsers with JS disabled will not be able to use pages using ajax.
