JavaScript has experienced a revival during the last years. While some of it is due to the hyped Ajax technique, another important factor is the emergence of competent, lightweight framework libraries. One of the most popular is jQuery and even my brilliant colleagues seems to think well of it.

It seems that even Microsoft has embraced jQuery and will supposedly include it in future versions of ASP.NET. Recently they released files that enables intellisense in VS2008. SP1 for VS2008 is required, but it also works in the express version.

I was pleasantly surprised by this unexpected move by Microsoft, but I guess they have realized that some people prefer jQuery instead of the bulky ASP.NET AJAX framework.
