Doing a View>Source on Yahoo show a <!DOCTYPE HTMl...> and on Google it shows a content type="html/text". There's not whole lot of languages out there to make web pages with, your bound to be pretty close if you guess.

I think the search engine uses some C++ and some miscellaneous python scripts aswell. And Google Suggest uses AJAX,

AJAX isn't a language, it's a combination of technologies. It stands for Asynchronous Javascript and XML, and uses...well... javascript and XML.

They could be using whatever language they like to generate their output, C++ and Python would be my guess, but it really could be anything.

Sorry, I don't get it.
Do you mean the language came from Microsoft?

Yeah, there are lots more than you would first think of, but stuff like perl and Java have uses other than with web design. You do have to remember that some of these oddball languages that only a handful of people use will need some special attention and may even determine which operating system you run and other stuff (like ASP being a Microsoft technology).

montyauto--.Net (dot net) is a collection of programming and scripting libraries and development environments to help people create applications and what not that is intended for use on Microsoft systems, it a proprietary alternative to everything else.

AJAX allows you to update web page content without changing or reloading pages, check out the W3schools site to learn more.

I just visit there and browse all example pages of AJAX, but couldn't find a page with updating content without refreshing.

Would be nice if you inform a link showing this feature, thanks.

It's all in the tutorial. Did you read the tutorial? Simply looking at examples isn't going to help you much if you don't know what you're looking for..

Somebody up there in this thread mentioned that Google Suggest uses AJAX. You know on google, as you are typing in what ever you want to search for, the drop down shows things similar to what you are typing. This is AJAX in action. If it had to refresh every single time you typed a new letter, that would be just plain annoying. Another thing I could think of that somebody could use AJAX for would be something like a calculator or something like that.

Yeah, that wasn't meant to be a complete list. I was just making the point that there are plenty of technologies out there for web development, and that narrowing it down wouldn't be quite that easy.
