Soon after this occurred, Mozilla and Safari caught up and were able to also handle the interactions. However it would not be until 2006 that the World Wide Web Consortium would officially recognise the object and designate it with its official ISO.
Unfortunately, this dynamically created content is not truly registered into the web browser’s history and thus one cannot simply make use of the back button to return to previous information. However this can be fixed by using invisible iFrames in order to fool the browser into adding it to the history. Furthermore, because of this fact it is also not possible to bookmark the data retrieved through AJAX.
While AJAX is not yet fully supported by the World Wide Web Consortium, within time it may be, however until then if you plan on making use of the technology, please make sure that the data is also available through other means as well as checking it for any security issues. The last part is of utmost importance because with the use of client side scripting, you are giving hackers a means of accessing your server if it is not checked and protected.
