This isn't just plane javascript, its something called ajax, I don't know if you heard of it, but a lot of people use it for dynamic things on there page. It can also send data to PHP, with that you can take the PHP variables and insert into the MySQL, to learn more about ajax, just search google for ajax, there are numerous good tutorials out there. :D

AJAX is a part of JavaScript and most of the browsers currently supports that.
