It seems like jQuery has beaten Prototype, Mootools, Dojo and all the others.
While recent Garnter Studies still claim Prototype and Scriptaculous being the leading duo, this will for sure change.
Microsoft and Nokia announced that they will integrate jQuery into their software stacks. While Mircosoft and Nokia are not Google and Yahoo! and seem not to be that important in Internet business right now, one important detail should not be overlooked:
Nokia and Microsoft dominate the “runtime market”. Their systems run the majority of software applications, Nokia for the mobile market and Microsoft for the desktop/laptop market.
This announcement could make a noticeable shift in market shares towards jQuery. Who could dare to ignore the new first class citizen in the web platform world?
