DOMAssistant 2.6 released
First a couple of words about performance. In DOMAssistant 2.6, the performance of CSS selectors has been improved a lot—run the SlickSpeed Selectors Test to see just how fast it is. Opinions on the usefulness of the SlickSpeed test vary, but no matter how you spin it, DOMAssistant’s CSS selectors are really fast.
A new feature is support for plugins, which among other things will enable people to add stuff like animations and superfluous visual bling bling. The plugin model can of course be used to add useful functionality as well :-).
For Robert’s own, more detailed, description of the news and changes in DOMAssistant 2.6, read his post on the DOMAssistant development blog: Releasing DOMAssistant 2.6—overall fastest CSS selectors, plugins and more.
If you’re like me and are more interested in building websites than trying to emulate desktop applications in the browser, DOMAssistant should appeal to you. Give it a try. If you like it, great! If you prefer another library or framework, good for you. Just be aware of the options.
