XMLHttpRequest (XHR) API


XMLHttpRequest (XHR) is a Javascript object that is used to send HTTP or HTTPS requests directly to a web server and load the server response data directly back into the script.

XMLHttpRequest allows JavaScript to make HTTP requests, and is the most basic part of AJAX. It allows a website to dynamically request more content, without reloading the entire page.
