What is jQuery

What is jQuery? jQuery makes using a Web page’s DOM (document object model), adding effects to the page, animating elements, and executing Ajax calls to the server extremely simple, hiding the complexity of the underlying JavaScript. There are a number of benefits to using jQuery instead of writing your own raw JavaScript or building your own library. If you want to add rich user interactivity or Ajax features to your Web site, there really is no reason not to consider jQuery. Once you learn what jQuery can do and how small and efficient it is, it’s easy to understand why Microsoft abandoned its own Ajax Library in favor of jQuery. The jQuery library is lightweight, highly extensible, and cross browser friendly.
