What is JQuery and its relationship with other JavaScript libraries?

JQuery, on the other hand, is a free, fast, and concise JavaScript library created in 2006 by John Resig.

JQuery wraps many raw JavaScript functionalities in methods that you can call with simple syntax. It’s not a language but a tool written in JavaScript that simplifies and streamlines JavaScript programming.

JQuery simplifies the HTML markup, document traversal, event handling, animating, and AJAX interactions for rapid web development.

You can think of JQuery as a Swiss Army Knife for JavaScript, bundling together everyday tasks into concise, cross-browser compatible code. It helps developers “write less, do more,” as its tagline suggests.
