jQuery has been here since 2006 and it is still quite popular among web developers – what with it powering around 73% websites today. Yet, with the advancements in web browsers and the emergence of single-page-application (SPA) frameworks, clients hiring a programmer to develop a website prefer taking the short and supposedly easy way. The relevance of jQuery today is tested. So here are some reasons why clients hiring a developer might want to continue using jQuery after all.
Secondly, jQuery is one of the minimalistic libraries we have used till date and continues to do so. Therefore, web developers working on crucial web development projects can certainly continue to use jQuery without second thoughts.
Programmers familiar with WordPress or other related CMS can afford to work using jQuery. Clients hiring a programmer to develop websites targeted at even old versions of browsers can also use jQuery. In any case, web developers are so used to jQuery because of its ease of use and simplicity. No harm in continuing coding in it.
