I've never heard of such a thing.  The term "driven" is often associated with "data base driven web site."  It implies that the content served in the web pages is dynamic, coming from a data base, and custom-tailored to each HTTP request.

The greatest "con" to ajax pages usually arises from incompetent security on the server.  Many novice programmers assume that jQuery or some similar JavaScript library can adequately filter invalid or dangerous inputs.  That's not true -- the server has to do the filtering.  The front-end part (JavaScript / jQuery) is there for the purpose of producing an attractive client (human client) experience.  Data model security is the responsibility of the programmers who write the server-side scripts.

As a practical matter, you can assume that all clients have cookies enabled and have JavaScript enabled.  Without those, you cannot use Twitter, Facebook, Google, Yahoo, Amazon, and many more popular web sites.  So just ignore those "edge-case" clients and design for the center of gravity.  If your site is wildly successful and you're making a lot of money, you can revisit the question of whether it's worth it to hire accessibility experts (at great cost) to try to expand your site to the other 2% that have the client-side features turned off.

What I really meant is SPA (single page application), where only parts of the page are changed when necessary. The application I am planning to write is a simple cms system, I don't need to worry about use logins, security (it is behind firewall), so why not to do it on one page.

Another one though i am not too sure about is

The current technology for that is called jQuery.  An example of the jQuery/AJAX "hello world" exercise is available here.
