Recently I've been testing out jQuery. Why do I use jQuery instead of prototype / scriptaculous? The main reason is because of the size. The full version of the framework is just 16K.

From jQuery website

jQuery is designed to change the way that you write Javascript. jQuery is a Javascript library that takes this motto to heart: Writing Javascript code should be fun. jQuery acheives this goal by taking common, repetitive, tasks, stripping out all the unnecessary markup, and leaving them short, smart and understandable.

jQuery itself have most of the features that I need. For example DOM traversing and modification, event handling, iteration, style, effects and of course AJAX. All this is pack in a single js file of 16K.

I'll put up some of the features and function of using jQuery with Lotus Notes in the future. So lookup for the writeup.
