When to use Ajax and when to reload

The Limits of Context
When to use Ajax and when to reload

In modern web application design and development, as we strive for greater control of the user's experience, we rely heavily on Ajax to control the interactions, transitions and feedback. We do this to maintain context for the user during their interactions. As designers, we need to be able to clearly see and communicate which contexts exist, so that developers can make decisions about how to keep and switch contexts.
