Friday, October 12th, 2007p>Back in July, we held our third annual Ajax Reader Survey. The results are in. Some interesting observations:
- Prototype and Scriptaculous still dominate the field with 68% and 59% of readers using them, respectively. jQuery has a respectable 48% share. Yahoo UI!, Dojo, and Ext JS round out the top six. Google Gears enjoys usage by 22% of survey participants–pretty amazing for its youth. Despite Java’s popularity amongst our readers, DWR is only used by 13% of readers, which surprised us.
- A little over 50% of readers use PHP, and about 40% use Java. Only 20% of readers use .NET technologies.
- The biggest concern on your mind? Cross-browser rendering issues, with 60% of you listing it as your biggest concern.
What questions/frameworks did we leave out? What do you think of the results?
UPDATE: There were 826 total responses to the survey. (Sorry this was left out of the PDF.)
UPDATE 2: It turns out MooTools received a whopping 11.3% of “Other” write-ins for the Frameworks question. Who knows how high it would have ranked if there was a direct option for it. In any event, we apologize for neglecting to include it.
UPDATE 3: We’ve updated the PDF to include the data in the previous updates.
