Introduction to jQuery

jQuery is a popular JavaScript library originally written by John Resig in 2006. As an open source library, it is always beeing updated and refined by a growing community of contributors.

jQuery is both designers and developers for easy content selection and manipulation for creating subtitle to 'flashy' effects. One of the great advantages of using jQuery is that it is by default automatically compatiable with all current browsers (IE, FF, Safari, Opera, Chrome, etc.) so testing is streamlined and efficient.
