The W3C’s XMLHttpRequest Object Working Draft

Category: Ajax, XmlHttpRequest

According to this new post on the Ajax Magazine site, the W3C (World Wide Web Consortium) is working up their official draft for the XMLHttpRequest object.

The specification aims to provide more interoperability between the different XMLHttpRequest implementations and avoiding to have plateform dependant code.

The document give a specification proposal for the XMLHttpRequest object, its Attributes and methods. Of course the creation of a standard isn’t the easy process and will take time, but it’s great that this process have already started and got already a first working draft.

Ajax Magazine also notes that the Authors list includes representatives from lots of major sources, including Google, Opera, Sun, AOL, Mozilla, and Apple.

It’s expected Microsoft will soon join. Not entirely clear though.

Maybe Microsoft refused, or disagreed with the direction, or maybe they have something else up their sleeves….
