the other day i saw a thread asking about which framework to choose from jquery, dojo, mootools, prototype etc. i agreed with all of you that it depends upon the project requirement. what i want to know is that i don't have such restriction as that of project requirement. i am on path of learning a framework and the time i have is very less. what i want is to start with a good framework( i know there ain't such framework as good as on the other thread you all mentioned about project requirements) but since i do not know about any framework , i want to start with the one which is good enough. i would like you all to give me an honest advice that uh may be you start with jquery or prototype. i want to stick it with one as i already mentioned about my time constraints. so please help me out and help me choose. alot of people in my company use jquery but to be honest they started using it out of a rat race. one person found jquery and it started. nobody even bothered to check other frameworks out there. so what i can do is to follow the same rat race and learn jquery and be happy or i can save the time make a good decision and make a good start. please help ?

Thanks alot Jeanne for your reply. and honestly i will go by jquery, but what is troubling me is that after i'm half way through jquery a person should not come , drop by and say "hey gurpreet , I know jquery is good but Prototype or some other XYZ is more popular/good and you should have started from it ".

Thanks Bear alot. Thanks Jeanne again. Would go for jquery.
