Because jQuery is an open-source community, there are tons of free plugins out there. If it can be thought up, somebody has probably already built something similar. The library is simple enough that plugins can be modified to fit a user’s needs. This also means that there is a ton of support out there. Check out one of our Facebook apps using one of the many slider plugins.
One of the most time-consuming things a Web developer must do is spend time checking and making sure sites work across all browsers. The developers behind jQuery have handled most of the dreaded cross-browser issues, saving developers a lot of that energy and time.
Easy to Use
Web languages can look like a foreign language to many people out there, including developers. The beauty of the library is that it’s relatively easy to use once you learn some of the syntax. jQuery takes some of the most complex code and makes it easier to read and implement.
These are just some ways jQuery can add value to a site. Clients can expect to see the Etna Web development team using the library to help create top-ranked sites.
