Commonly thought of as a series of letters that make up a 'word' there is a distinction between acronyms and shorthand.The actual definition of an acronym and text shorthand is here.
Acronyms have always been an integral part of computer culture, and they have since spawned a new language on the Internet.
Here's a link to the spec https://whatwg.org/ Edit: Using ES7 async/await, this becomes simply (based on this Gist): IE will cache URLs in order to make loading faster, but if you're, say, polling a server at intervals trying to get new information, IE will cache that URL and will likely return the same data set you've always had.
Regardless of how you end up doing your GET request - vanilla Java Script, Prototype, j Query, etc - make sure that you put a mechanism in place to combat caching.
BTW: If you ever see someone TYPING AN ENTIRE SENTENCE IN ALL CAPITAL LETTERS that means SHOUTING!
It is not proper netiquette to TYPE IN ALL CAPS (even in email), in fact, it's annoying.
