jQuery is a fast, small, and feature-rich JavaScript library that simplifies HTML document traversal, event handling, animation, and AJAX interactions for rapid web development. It provides an easy-to-use API for manipulating the DOM, handling events, and making asynchronous HTTP requests. jQuery's cross-browser compatibility and extensive plugin ecosystem have made it a popular choice for front-end development.

While jQuery was widely used in the past, its usage has declined with the rise of modern JavaScript frameworks like React, Angular, and Vue. As a result, jQuery is considered a legacy library and is no longer recommended for new projects. Developers are encouraged to use native JavaScript methods or modern frameworks for better performance and maintainability.
