Hi , the below is taken from a AJAX Tutorial

AJAX does have its limitation but most of them can be overcome by integrating AJAX with other technologies whenever required.

Can anybody please let me know Is there any other limitation rather than unable to send large data ??

Thanks in advance .

"AJAX has less security." compared to what??
"AJAX has a problem of data cache" compared to what??
"and many more ." compared to what"??

Comparison between technologies like ASP, PHP, JSP makes sense since they alternatives for doing the same thing.

I don't think there is any real alternative to 'Ajax' - unless you ready to give up the functionality altogether.

Both of those are incorrect. There is no magical protocol that the XMLHttpReuest uses. The XMLHttpRequest uses basic http calls. Ajax is not any less secure than a normal http call. Caching problems are because a developer does not understand GET and Caching Headers on the requests/responses.
