AJAX: A Microsoft Technology

Slashdot has some funny ones from time to time. Like this one, where the author contends that AJAX is a new Microsoft technology.
(note: the article he links to about AJAX is worth the read!)

But AJAX isn’t new. It is old – many years old, for all that it didn’t become popular until recently.
And it was the tech darling Google that made it popular, not Microsoft.
