Firefox 3.5 and Safari 4 implement the CORS specification, using XMLHttpRequest as an “API container” that sends and receives the appropriate headers on behalf of the web developer, thus allowing cross-site requests. IE8 implements part of the CORS specification, using XDomainRequest as a similar “API container” for CORS, enabling simple cross-site GET and POST requests.
