ABSTRACT
The article presents information on web development technologies and browsers, from Google Inc., Apple Inc., and Mozilla Corp. Ajax is a name given to a quartet of programming technologies that collectively made possible the likes of Google Maps and Gmail. It is stated that the coming evolution in browsers is akin to the Ajax phenomenon of recent years. Another is an Apple-created graphics technology known as Canvas, which gives programmers much more freedom using text and drawings.
