Hello Bear,

Plenty of AJAX frameworks are out there in the market. Why one should pick jQuery? Are there any specific advantages of using jQuery over other frameworks?

Thank you.

Hi Vikas, I covered a lot of this in other replies, but essentially I prefer jQuery due to how lightweight it is, how easy it is to use and learn, and how it's the one that uses JavaScript to best advantage.
