Like every thing advantage and disadvantage Ajax has too some disadvantage like

When we use Ajax it is difficult to return back page , when we click on back button we

Got first page(because same page is using for sending or fetching data but when we need just last use thing we could not able to seen last modified data they gone to starting point

And also need to more concentration because it is faster to implement but still it is very beneficial to us

Questions : 20 how can we detect asynchronous partial page postbacks?
Answer : 20 Use the IsInAsyncPostBack property of the ScriptManager . It returns a boolean value that can be used to check for partial page postbacks. Partial Page PostBack: It is the mechanism through which a particular area of a web page is updated when some postback occurs.The whole page is not updated when the postback occurs. It results in performance improvement. AJAX Technology provides us with a Control known as UpdatePanel which is used for partial page postbacks. example: if we place a button and a Label inside UpdatePanel, and write code to display some text on the Label, the whole page will not be posted and updated. The indicator progressbar in the browser statusbar will not be visible in this case.

2) JSONP (JSON with padding) : It is only works HTTP GET verb and on legacy browsers.
Questions : 22 What are the disadvantages of AJAX?
Answer : 22 These are the disadvantages:
1) AJAX is dependent on Javascript. If there is some Javascript problem with the browser or in the OS,your AJAX functionality may not work.
2) Search engines generally do not index Javascript present in web pages. AJAX can be problematic in Search engines as it uses Javascript for most of its parts.
3) source code written for AJAX is easily human readable.
4) Debugging is difficult. We have often to use additional Javascript code for that.
5) Data of all requests is URL-encoded. It increases the size of the request. It can cause problem while Paginating through GridView if there is a huge data.
6)Slow and unreliable network connection.
7)Problem with browser back button when using AJAX enabled pages.
