Not synchronous; occurring at different times.
(computing, communication) Having many actions occurring at a time, in any order, without waiting for each other; the style of communication used by Ajax.
From Latin and Greek origins, asynchronous translates as not together with time. Referring to signals or events that bear no relationship to timing and, therefore, can be considered occurring at random instants and, for recurring events, at random intervals. See also asynchronous transmission and synchronous.
