jquery or mootools

    as i’m new to javaScript and MooTools, can’t really contribute to this arguments (even though would love to :lol: ) – though there are a lot of great things that am learning from this.
    especially this article

    Y’all should read this article:
    http://jqueryvsmootools.com/

    Seems to be ideal for a beginner, though the fact that the author is an MT developer might lean the article towards MTs favor
    Cool stuff

    jQuery
    General: fast to implement, vast community and support – but possibly a bit tricky to extend unless you’re a blackbelt in JS. Not so great at effects. Degrades gracefully.
    Pros: Fast, easy, great DOM selector.
    Cons: Stops you learning pure JS.

    MooTools:
    General: OOP JS framework, great at visual effects, extends native JS model (and therefore does NOT work with other libraries). Modifies JS to take the crap bits out to make it more elegant.
    Pros: "Pure", great effects – a coder’s JS library
    Cons: Incompatible with other libraries, community not as large as jQuery.

    I never knew that MooTools provide greater visual effects than jQuery. I have also learned jQuery first hence I am very much comfortable with it but I would love to try out MooTools so that I can compare it better. No matter how many reviews and comparisons I check out, in the end the personal experience of the libraries counts the most. But for now I would have to say that jQuery is very easy to implement and one can easily manipulate it a lot to do loads of stuff.
