jQuery

jQuery is another emerging technology that I am experimenting with and I’m slowly getting to grips with the complexity of it.

On the face of things, this is a very powerful script that speeds up your website by offering a single reference for all corresponding javascript throughout the site.

It’s also important for ridding the web of Flash. Don’t get me wrong, Flash had it’s uses, but the web is moving forward to a much more lightweight infrastructure, Flash doesn’t really have a place on the web for that purpose.

The combination of HTML5, CSS3 and jQuery is clearly paving the way forward for web design, especially with the advent of mobile web design.

The emergence of jQuery mobile speaks volumes of the push for javascript compliant browsers and with mobile web traffic set to outstrip desktop, it’s in the perfect condition to lead the way.

My experience with jQuery is to adorn websites with additional functionality including tabs and animation.
