The flexibility and creativity that AJAX programming affords the developer also places a corresponding burden on him to ensure that his code is secure against these new threats.

Also, AJAX applications are more complicated because processing is done on both the client side and the server side.
Testing AJAX applications can be challenging because developers are given a tremendous amount of freedom in how they communicate between the client and the server.

 thwartedefforts » Race Conditions with Ajax and PHP Sessions
Ajax applications could logically be thought of as being (multi-)threaded, even though the environment (javascript on the client, your-favorite-language on the server) does not explicitly mention threads and multi-processing concepts (like critical sections, shared variables, etc).
Anyone who's implemented Ajax based auto-complete functionality and didn't take into account that individual responses can be returned in a different order or be delayed may have seen a race condition at work in their client side code.
Since Ajax calls are asynchronous, and a multi-processing web server, like Apache, can handle multiple requests at once, then the same session data may be in use by multiple threads of execution on the server at the same time.
