better-dom: Live extension playground
This library is about ideas. After some time of using jQuery I found that it's just too big, has lack of features needed and the API design is debatable. In particular live extensions was one of the main ideas that encouraged me to build a new library from scratch.
Note, that the better-dom project is only about the DOM. It does not contain any AJAX or BOM helper.
