Working of the World Wide Web - AJAX

The World Wide Web operates using a client/server networking principle. When you enter the URL (the web address) of a web page into your browser and click on Go, you ask the browser to make an HTTP request of the particular computer having that address.

In the case of the Internet, of course, the server and client computers may be located anywhere in the world.
