Full Range of Web Access Support

Mathematica provides full client-side web access for sending data to and receiving data from remote servers and for interacting with web APIs. Downloaded data can be analyzed with the full functionality of Mathematica. Asynchronous access allows AJAX-style programming for performing operations in the background.
