Very interesting debate, although anyone not technically inclined would consider my rationale for such a statement. These days there is a vast array of Javascript Frameworks on the internet each offering their own implementation of 'next generation' Javascript.

... are just a few, but seriously. Which one do you choose ? I came across this article tonight debating which is better between two of the top frameworks. "Mootools or jQuery : Choosing between two great frameworks".

Essentially if you're familiar with the selector concept and have an intermediate understanding of Javascript it's fairly easy to port between the two, but I thought it was an article worthy of sharing.
