Three important properties of the XMLHttpRequest object. These are given in the table
||This property stores a function (or the name of a function) that to be called automatically every time the readyState property changes
||It is holds the status of the XMLHttpRequest object( Changes from 0 to 4: )
0: When request is not initialized
1: When server established the connection
