i was reading this article [webmasterworld.com] and done a little bit of research and it looks like jQuery is coming out top for me, although i have been told that MooTools is good.
Does anyone think that one is better than the other? It will be used almost exclusively for CMS systems using PHP MySQL.
I would choose YUI over both of those options, given the choice.
I second that... I would even take Spry as a second choice over those others to be honest and it is in pre-release still, but Spry is way nicer looking out of the box and they you can get support questions answered by the developers on their forum because of the fact it is in pre-release and they are trying to get people to use it so they get free testing... I have been impressed.
But i am thinking more long term - if it takes me longer to learn something that is a bit more robust and versatile then i am willing to do that. Would YUI be in this bracket do you think?
Too be honest I have been mixing and matching. I have sites that run both. For example a photo gallery looks way nicer with Spry default then YUI so I went with that for Ajax galleries and form validation is nice looking too, but for other stuff I use YUI.
Like you said, you are thinking long term so no reason not to dabble with both.
