Question by Adam Kiss
Most arguments seem to make sense actually.
Now, I really like jQuery, mostly for letting me concentrate on things I want to do rather on browser inconsistencies and it actually makes AJAXing with cool (or overused?) effects fun.
But if really is something rotten in the core of jQuery, I don’t want to rely on it the way I actually… rely on it.
I don’t want to start yet another argument over which framework is the best… but… Which framework is the best (joke)? As a case usage, think about small to medium web and it’s administration.
Also I’m really interested in:
- Does jQuery heavily rely on browser sniffing? Could be that potential problem in future? Why?
- I found plenty JS-selector engines, are there any AJAX and FX libraries?
- Is there any reason (besides browser sniffing and personal “hate” against John Resig) why jQuery is wrong?
jQuery actually, as most used, stands for other frameworks also.

Now comes the choice of the framework. For what benchmarks are worth, you can find one at http://ejohn.org/files/142/ . It also depends on which plugins are available and what you intend to do with them. I started using jQuery because it seemed to be maintained and well featured, even though it wasn’t the fastest at that moment. I do not regret it but I didn’t test anything else since then.
