Best Use of Interaction

These services offer almost real-time two-way interaction between the server and the client. The user communicates to the server (through hypertext, image maps, or forms), influencing the server's response; thus, the user can obtain information in a way that was not entered explicitly by the developer. In a way, this is what HTTP was originally designed to do.
