    In my experience the jQuery package is better community supported and nicer for the user experience.

    jQuery is easier to work with too, if you know CSS jQuery is really easy to pickup and use.
    And jQuery is building mobile elements that will make a mobile style look almost like an app. :)

    jQuery, because it's the only one I even remotely know.

    YUI used to be a bit bloated and cluttered. It's slowly getting better, but overall, jQuery is my choice. Plenty of community support and awareness.

    Seems jQuery is winning with 16 votes to ummm 0...

    I also vote for jQuery, it seems better managed, less bloated and in my opinion more powerful... The massive community support is amazing...

    I am also looking forward to their new mobile UI... it is getting very very close to http://www.sencha.com/

    jQuery combines speed and ease of use, which are really the most important factors in a framework.

    Well... I just did first vote for YUI :p

    I think, JQuery would be wonderfull for small projects. But YUI 3 have more modular desing and API references are greate, understandable. Has a standard!, you might say. YUI 3 OOP 's not compared to JQuery 's OOP.

    Having used both, my vote goes straight to jQuery with its clean, concise syntax and useful functions. That said, I have not even looked at YUI 3 - so I'm not really comparing like-for-like.

    +1 jQuery


    I like it because it's fast and concise and simplifies things.
