How jQuery has changed the face of web design
Before jQuery came along animation on websites was strictly reserved to flash websites and low quality gif images. With flash your website design would look flawless… but any search engines attempting to index your sites content would have a nightmare trying to lift the content as it is locked within the flash imagery.
The ability to attach extensions such as the photo gallery to a website can give an additional air of professionalism and create an element of trust with a potential customer. But it doesn’t stop with photo galleries, there are thousands of plugins currently available right now and the number is growing every day. From calendar applications to drop menu extensions and media players there is a wealth of ready developed functionality available for websites without having to reinvent the wheel.
