    It has some duplication here but quite inspiring. My favourite has to be the annotation overlays but I think the PNG must be quite heavy but for the right application very good. I’m new to jquery and the jquery rss reader for mobile was also good.

    ‘It is a powerful tool that improves the user’s interactivity in Web applications.’
    jquery is just another js framework (with a shitty design). definitely, nothing more.
    if you write js the right way you rarely need to perform even document.getElementById().
