Zepto.js: jQuery-compatible minimalist JavaScript library

Zepto.js: the aerogel-weight jQuery-compatible JavaScript library

"Zepto is a minimalist JavaScript library for modern browsers with a largely jQuery-compatible API. If you use jQuery, you already know how to use Zepto.

While 100% jQuery coverage is not a design goal, the APIs provided match their jQuery counterparts. The goal is to have a ~5-10k modular library that downloads and executes fast, with a familiar and versatile API, so you can concentrate on getting stuff done.

Zepto is open source software and is released under the developer and business-friendly MIT license."

Note: jQuery appears to have better performance.

On the other side, both jQuery and Zepto.js are much slower than direct access to DOM from JavaScript.
