JavaScript and Ajax for Web Applications

Just read an article about Fixing Web, Part 1 referred by Ajaxian blog. It mentioned leading three tools used by developers: jQuery, Dojo and YUI. I know the first two already, actually in the learning progress and very impressed by them, the last one is new.

YUI is Yahoo! User Interface Library with set of utilities and controls based on JavaScript. I went to Yahoo! developer site for YUI and watched the overview vedio. It is another very impressive tool I am going to learn.

As the article says, "We've made major progress on the web since 2005 and the rise of Ajax. JavaScript toolkits like JQuery, Dojo, and YUI have expanded what we can do with web browsers and increased our productivity...", I really like to sharp my skills with these great tools.
