AJAX Principles

This post briefs out the AJAX principles.

Minimal traffic:
Send and receive as little information as possible to and from the server to keep the traffic minimal

No surprises:
Being consistent so that user knows what to do next, no matter what interaction model is opted for design

Established conventions:
Borrow heavily from traditional web applications and desktop applications keeping the learning curve minimal

No distractions:
Avoid unnecessary and distracting page elements such as looping animations and blinking page sections

Accessibility:
Consider primary and secondary users and how they most likely access the application

Avoid entire page download:
All server communication after the initial page download must be managed by the Ajax engine

User first:
Designing the application with the users in mind before anything else
