No it isn’t.
There are lots of weird misconceptions about jQuery – but anyone who spends a few hours playing with the library will realize these things aren’t true.
I really like jQuery. It’s one of my favorite libraries – right up there with Box2D, TweenLite, PaperVision and Raphael. It’s saved me hours on commercial projects, provided hours of entertainment and I’ve learned a bunch of interesting stuff from browsing through the source code.
The idea for this post came from a skribit suggestion. Thanks to the person that suggested it.
