Hello, Sergo 93 ! AJAX, Ajax - an approach to building interactive user interfaces for web applications, which consists in the "background" exchange of browser data with a web server. As a result, when you update the data, the web page does not completely restart, and web applications become faster and more convenient. https://www.sololearn.com/Course/JavaScript/?ref=app

AJAX allows you to send and receive data without refreshing the page. For example, if you wanted to get data from a PHP form. normally, you'd need to redirect the user to the page which would require a refresh. With AJAX, you can do this all in the background. The user wouldn't even notice.
