An ECMAScript 5 only-compatible JavaScript library

The goal of this light-weight JavaScript library is to provide a nice, shorter and extended API using latest native compliant JavaScript and DOM APIs. Taking advantage of amazing native speed, of course only in modern browsers, and no more adding extra bytes for older ones.

Give it a try and start using a robust, light-weight and modern library today.

API Documentation

Please visit the documentation to see how easy is to use with its jQuery-like API.
