I’ve been quite impressed with jQuery. I originally used the whole prototype scriptaculous duo, but jquery better suited my tastebuds.
I recently had an old html form that I needed to change data in based on other data input. Rather than have an html onload= on every input, I was able to write just a few lines of jquery to handle it all.
I had also never done anything with XPath and was forced into it via the same form, and jQuery handled it with ease.
FWIW, I quite like YUI, I use the date widget a lot.
Great site by the way!
Barry, you’ll be happy to know that YUI-EXT and jQuery are joining forces. jQuery will be an optional “engine” (instead of DomQuery) for YUI-EXT. It seems pooled resources are beginning to happen.
