First of all AJAX, as you pointed out in the first few paragraphs, IS JavaScript. So I am not sure you can compare the differences because you are talking about literally the same thing. Second you are comparing a language to a construct within that language. Third, you can't really get a clear picture because you talk very vaguely with no examples. Lastly, some points are just a bit in the wrong direction. While yes AJAX is typically asynchronous you can also make synchronous requests and I am not sure where you were going with the "understood by the browser" point because again, AJAX and JavaScript are both browser based. AJAX makes use of the JavaScript XMLHttpRequest object.
