Hi,

Is Ajax compatible with all browsers, or does the browsers acceptance of JavaScript determine where Ajax can be used?

Almost all of the mainstream modern browsers support Ajax in one form or another. The Gecko-based browsers, along with Safari (and I think lately, Opera) support Ajax through a native Javascript XMLHttpRequest object. IE uses an ActiveX object.

And of course, any browser that supports iframes can use "iframe variant" of Ajax.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
