One may also ask, what is a fetch API? The Fetch API is a simple interface for fetching resources. Fetch makes it easier to make web requests and handle responses than with the older XMLHttpRequest, which often requires additional logic (for example, for handling redirects). Note: Fetch supports the Cross Origin Resource Sharing (CORS).
No, fetch is not part of them. They only define the language (syntax and semantics) and a few builtin objects. You can implement a compliant JS engine it without providing fetch . The Fetch standard is part of the web platform, underlying several other web standards.
Is fetch better than Ajax?
Fetch is a browser API for loading texts, images, structured data, asynchronously to update an HTML page. Therefore, if you are looking for maximum compatibility, you will continue to use Ajax to update a web page. If you also want to interact with the server, the WebSocket object is also more appropriate than fetch.
