    Problem is in your anchor tag

    Your reload problem is not due to your AJAX code, rather the anchor tags href. <a href="home.html" onclick="...."> when clicked will cause the current page to navigate to home.html.

    Option 1: use href="#" instead of pointing to an external URL.

    Option 2: don't use an anchor tag at all. Replace the <a> tag with a <span> tag.

    Hope this helps.
