    what is the best API library?

    tanktery Level 1

      I have been looking at the code of some web sites and I have found that more and more people are linking to API library. I am confused as to which library is best, what's more you can link to JQuery from Google's API library so if anyone could explain that to me that would be great.

      API library I have found are there others? and if so what are they?

       

      • Google
      • YUI
      • JQuery
      • Mootools

          Google did this as a public service.  By hosting the highly popular jQuery library on their super fast servers, individual site owners don't need to host the scripts themselves.  And since so many sites use jQuery, chances are your site visitors already have the Google hosted version in their cache.  This speeds up internet performance for everyone.
