This new design is artistic, expressive, and fun. Which is exactly what jQuery is about. I’ve even seen complaints about the project having ‘lost credibility’ and some people complaining that they won’t be able to convince team members or clients to use jQuery because of this design. Please, less of the melodrama. First off, there is no reason on this God given earth that a client should at any point be aware of what JS library you use, and certainly shouldn’t be in on the choice of one. You the developer are the expert, not they the client. It’s your choice not theirs. Secondly, if your team judges the effectiveness of a framework based on the look of the homepage, then your team has far bigger problems than you might think.
