the dominance of The Library is not, of course, because surveys among developers have occupied that the Populuarität of jQuery declined sharply. The library is still found in 85% of all web sites, according to the authors of the report, two main reasons.

Also, the exchange of jQuery and any other JavaScript Library can be connected depending on the scope with some effort what could be an explanation of why many website owners prefer to stay in the used Library. The farewell to jQuery not be done easily, is currently observed, for example, in the case of Ember, the we reported.
