JQuery Against Anything Else

I have fallen in love with a new Javascript Library. Gone are the days of prototype, I have found JQuery, which I have quickly learnt and begun to write my own custom variables.

OK so Prototype has the experience, the big guns behind one of the most popular Javascript Libraries around, but JQuery is so simple, you don’t have to borrow someone else’s good looking code, you can make your own. There is a growing library on the web too, with many good developers sharing their skills, like those over at Malsup with clever examples and the briefest but most helpful of code, they have enabled me to play with JQuery and make it work for me. My version Three of Media By will be heavy on JQuery, making use of the graphical interface rather than the technology, all the while making the site look GOOD.

The fear though; ‘is javascript a wise choice for web sites?’ My answer is why not? So many browsers have got their act together with regards to security, and more and more people are becoming aware of web 2.0, you just have to put CSS in your browser to see the abundant list of web 2.0 galleries, and standard compliant sites. Javascript libraries are for the future. They are compatible with everything, they render well even in IE, and they are accessible.

So spread the word, turn on your javascript, the future is now. Lets make the web the future, and make it look good.
