my new obsession; jQuery

October 11, 2007

So it’s been around for awhile (Jan. 06 to be exact). I LOVE IT. It’s basically the love child of AJAX and JavaScript. You can do so many cool things with it. I’m still getting to know the language, but from what I’ve seen so far I’m very impressed.

The Internet is ever expanding and everyday developers are coming out with technology that smacks you in the face and doesn’t bother apologizing. Here I thought that animating on the web was (Adobe’s) Flash domain. Nope. With jQuery, animation is (somewhat) simple. You can’t necessarily do everything that Flash can do, but it does allow for less processing on the client side. You don’t even need a plug-in to run the scripts. This is wonderful. See for yourself:
