Zepto.js >> The Mozilla alternative to JQuery for Mobiles

Now with this title I am not saying that you should throw away JQuery etc… not at all… Lord knows I never will. But Mozilla has created a lighter version of JQuery to assist with Mozilla OS development and mobile HTML5 app development in general. When you download Mortar to have a play you will notice it is included.

I am playing with Mortar and it is a great kit to get your started with HTML5 mobile apps. Does it mean I will go to replacing JQuery with Zepto… probably not but for paying around with some Mozilla prototypes it seems quite nice. Though you have to ask yourself do I want to learn yet another Javascript library… Though that is the thing about web development and now it seems mobile development I think the acronym could be “YAJSTL” Yet Another Java Script Library to Learn ;)
