I doubt that it's compatible with Netscape 3 or Internet Explorer 2, what do you mean exactly by "all the browsers"? Here is the jQuery browser support page.

Bull-doody! If there are problems in a Firefox app it will (overwhelmingly) be likely that it's the app code that's causing the problem, not jQuery.

I agree. jQuery is much more likely to smooth out problems with browser differences than cause them. The idea that most web apps using jQuery have problems in Firefox doesn't jibe with my experience at all.

Agreed. My site at work and this site both use jQuery and work fine in Firefox.

There definitely should be a qualifier thrown in there, does it work with *ALL* browsers? No, however it does work very well with modern browsers and will help standardize usage as well as add animation (for browsers that do not support CSS3 transitions) with some legacy browsers.

It is interesting to keep in mind that what we may consider "legacy" is still current in many parts of the world. For example one of the most popular browsers right now in China is "Secure Browser 360" which is based on the Trident engine (and reports as IE 6 in the user agent string).

The Live Lessons focus more on jQuery core usage not on 3rd party or fallback solutions, however there are some "gotchas" and suggestions for best practices thrown in.
