you can use JSON with padding request for instance in jQuery you might use

$.getJSON(url, data, success )

url is url you want to send request to, data is object with data that will be sent with request, and success is callback function that will occur on success, you can also use .done method to trigger success call back and .fail method to trigger error like so

$.getJSON(url, data, success ).done(functionDone).fail(functionFail);

you pass functions to those methods.

Note that not all the sites allows you to do cross-domain requests.

You also can find more at the jQuery documentation, about this methods, along with examples.
