Hi Vasant

You would not find any reference to "ajax" as ajax is not a single  
technology, it is a term used to describe the use of a combination of  
javascript and asynchronous XMLHttpRequest.  These technologies are  
obviously supported by WebKit, as otherwise WebKit based browsers  
(such as Safari, Shiira, Epiphany, ...) would be unable to use many  
modern websites.

If you search the source for "XMLHttpRequest" you will also discover  
the many files that make up XHR and the associated API's.
