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 @$$.
