Not really. Ajax.Request makes a request to the server and gets the
response (if any) within itself. It doesn't update anything on the
page or the page itself unless you create a method to do that and
invoke that method inside one of its callback functions (onComplete,
onSuccess, that sort of thing).

My understanding is that Ajax.Request renders a new webpage using the
