Why you need jQuery
Let's recap some of the advantages to using jQuery in your next Web development project.
The price is right. The jQuery library is free.
It's light. Since jQuery pushes content to the client, it therefore reduces the wait time for server response. Plus, it's smaller than Flash, so it results in smoother playbacks and less errors.
It works anywhere. HTML5 is cross-browser compatible-it will work on any browser, mobile phone or tablet, and even on Apple devices.
Finally, jQuery is SEO friendly and CSS3 compliant.
