1. Open Source
If Adobe Flash isn’t installed on any given browser, certain parts of the page may render incorrectly, if they render at all. This is not only unpleasant for the user; it forces developers to spend extra time coding for the browsers that lack the Flash plug-in, which adds to development time.
3. Huge Library
From simple items like border radius, image slider, design forms, to placing grids, and display audio/videos… the resources are endless. These plugins are so simple to use that you can plug and play the code in just a few minutes. Pay attention to the demos of the plugins on the various websites to give you the feel of the change you would want to do. In addition, there are many pre-made themes available which developers can pick up quickly and design the page for CMS like WordPress and Drupal.
5. jQuery pages load faster
Google and other search engines using page load time as one of the many factors affecting SEO. (More on that later.) For this, and many other, reasons, every developer should strive to make code as light and concise as possible.
The best way to do this is to reduce the size of your code. If your site is coded with an HTML and CSS base, you can easily make uniform adjustments to your code that will reduce the size. Like CSS, jQuery files are generally stored separately from the Web page itself. This lets developers make modifications across the entire site through one central repository instead of search through folder structures. This is a core benefit of CSS coding, and it is a proven success.
In addition, jQuery gives you the option of loading div tags only when you need them. If you are taking measures to improve the speed of your website, then you may consider loading only the necessary div tags needed for your page load event. This way, you can display only what a user needs to see right away and have the rest of your division elements load as they are needed.
6. jQuery can be SEO friendly
You may have the most appealing site, but is it worth it if you sacrifice style for SEO? The way you code your site greatly affects the way it can be found in Google, Bing, and other search engines.
As noted, jQuery can be optimized for search engines, and there are a lot of plug-ins available to aid developers in this task. Embedding your jQuery elements using unordered lists is an SEO-friendly practice that works well.
