Framework Disagreement: JQuery: (Mis)leading the Pack

Category: JavaScript, Library, Prototype

Justin Palmer has taken issue to some of the statements made by jQuery and writes JQuery: (Mis)leading the Pack as a retort of sorts to “Why JQuery’s Philosophy is Better”.

He makes some good points about:

  • DOM Insertion
  • Chainability
  • CSS Selectors/Xpath
  • Plugin Development
  • Automatic Looping
  • Ajax Updating
  • Adding a class to an element
  • Adding a class to a group of elements

A pretty honest and inclusive set of comments (not a “they suck, we rule” type post).
