AngularJS can do everything that jQuery does and much more, yet is roughly equivalent in download size. It is easy to both write and run unit tests and end-to-end tests for AngularJS applications. Dependency management is effortless and intuitive. Binding dynamic data to your views is straightforward and powerful. Other topics I didn't cover - such as directives, routing, services, validation, resources, animation and localization - are equally thought out and useful tools. AngularJS is a solid foundation for building testable web applications that scale.
