Now that we've gotten nice and OT here, I might add that the number of
JQuery plugins that do x is a little overwhelming. Want a tooltip thingy? 25
alternatives to choose from. Then you tire of trying them one by one and
finding something unsatisfactory about them all, so you write your own. Then
you think hey maybe I should contribute this, and voilà, now there are 26.

The Protype vs JQuery debate strikes me as religious. Both are class acts,
take your pick.
