With AJAX you can load (part of) your page in the background, what gives it faster feeling (and in case it's just a little part of a huge page, it can in fact be faster also).

Because it is pure javascript, you don't need any serverscripting.

Some resources for beginners:

I recommand using the prototype Javascript library, wich can help you creating nice interactive web pages.
