    Not really, I think the idea is for people who understand jQuery a lot more and don't want to use the conventional, messy JavaScript for HTML5.

    What's the point in using that instead of doing it the usual way?

    Because a lot of people prefer the jQuery syntax, like me. Also, this makes things a hell of a lot simpler and more understandable.

    It's so much easier to grasp and understand, the regular syntax is so confusing and causes me to write so much more than I need to, plus jQuery is the future of Javascript (I hope...).

    Okay...

    jQuery is most definitely the future of interactive websites (Or even non-interactive aspects of sites, e.g. the jQuery used to position elements my Website). Even though jQuery is only a library for JavaScript, I hope it replaces JavaScript in the near-future.

    I doubt, it is simply a framework and no own language and I don't see why it should become one.

    To get a even better taste, combine CoffeeScript with jQuery, that kicks ass for js-development.

    I've been playing around with this, and it's interesting, but the events don't seem to work like you would think they do. It's not clear which properties of a layer you can change in response to an event on that layer and which you need to redraw he layer for. They have examples of stroke width changing on mouseover for example, which work fine, but when you change layer position instead, it doesn't work as well.
