Conclusion

Although AJAX allows us to build new and improved ways of interacting with a Web page, as developers we need to remember that the product is not about the technologies; it's about the users and how they interact with the product. Without the users, the projects we build would have no purpose. With that principle in mind, we can assess what technologies to use and when to use them in order to create an application that's beneficial to all who use it.
