The introduction of jQuery was released in January 2006. Six years later, it is still maintaining its position as best JavaScript library due to its simplicity. There are currently thousands of jQuery plug-ins available on the web which cover a wide range of functionality such as Ajax helpers, webservices, datagrids, dynamic lists, XML and XSLTtools, drag and drop, events, cookie handling, modal windows, even a jQuery-based Commodore 64 emulator.
