Ajax provides a method for exchanging data asynchronously between browser and server to avoid full page reloads.
Why re-fresh the page to check if there is a new post or a answer to your question?

The BBC make very good use of that technology on some pages.
For now, I use this in Palemoon. http://reloadevery.mozdev.org/
There are versions for FF, Chrome and in Opera it is already installed
