JQuery vs Prototype

Ajaxian has just posted two new posts adding fuel to the age old question of which Ajax framework to use in your web application. My current favorites are Prototype 1.51 and jQuery with jQuery currently winning by a nose.

  1. The first is that John-David Dalton has created ProtoPacked 2.13 which has managed to compress both Prototype and Script.aculo.us to 32kb. By anyone’s standards, that is awesome. The download is available here
  2. Second is Interface Elements which is to JQuery as Script.aculo.us is to Prototype. Interface Elements is a collection of rich interface components which utilizes the lightweight library jQuery. The collection includes all the goodies you’d expect including animation, drag and drop, tooltips, sliders etc.

    You can play with the impressive demos here.
