Free yourself from the chains of jQuery by embracing and understanding the modern Web API and discovering various directed libraries to help you fill in the gaps.

*I* don't need jQuery, but unfortunately 8 bazillion different Javascript libraries do. That's something I appreciate about libraries that have their own functions for selecting elements and other things you might normally use jQuery for. It allows someone using the library to swap out the implementation with one that uses or doesn't use jQuery (or uses some other alternative).
