WordPress vs Drupal. Fight!

To make a long story really short, an Ajax application uses JavaScript to get data from the server whenever it is needed, without requiring the browser to redraw the entire page. But Ajax makes it easy to bring familiar desktop behaviors like this to the Browser. That's Ajax as well

Google Spreadsheets

As you know, I've always been cautious of the marketing frenzy around "web2.0" even as I evangelize among non-profits for the use of some of this newer technology.
