What is an Ajax Cloudflare?

I've seen some people using this code below and after looking on the web I only found out that cloudflare speeds up websites. Is this just using a third party library? https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/sweetalert/1.1.3/sweetalert.min.css

Cloudflare is a company that offers a number of services. on of them is Content Distribution Networks. that link you posted... cdn in there means it's a content distribution network. what you posted is the CSS to a 3rd party library that offers some nice animated alert popups. Cloudflare doesn't make it but they are hosting the code for others to link to in their projects. Google does this and numerous others. They also offer DDoS protection for websites. Distributed Denial of Service attacks. I'll let you Google that one. Ajax stands for Asynchronous Javascript and XML. it is the original specification for asynchronous transfer of data between the client and server side of a web application. These days most of them end up using JSON instead of XML but the name has stuck. It doesn't belong to cloudflare in anyway.
