jQuery’s sporting a new website

The website for jQuery — my favorite JavaScript library — has just been redesigned, and it looks really good: love the way that jQuery is actually used in subtle ways on the homepage. The homepage illustration is a little out of place considering how clean and minimal everything else is, but reading this blog entry, that looks to have been intentional. On a sidenote, dumping jQuery simply because you don’t like one element of the new redesign is just silly.

Update: Looks like a lot of folks didn’t like the new design — specifically the ​“rock star” image on the homepage — and so the jQuery team made some adjustments to the site. I understand the objections the folks raised, but the site does seem to be lacking some ​“personality” now. Ah well, you can’t please everyone, and this doesn’t change the fact that jQuery kicks all kinds of @$$.
