jQuery is clearly the most popular, and the purpose of jQuery is to make many of those JavaScript functions that typically need a lot of lines of code easier to manage, and write by bundling them into method’s that can be called upon with a single line of code. jQuery is lightweight, and it’s extendable, plus there are plenty of jQuery plugins available for nearly every functionality you can think of.
