JQuery mobile – the new dawn of mobile browsing

If you are looking to build one advanced website, then JQuery software probably brings you the best possible option. There are numerous developers who are using these tools to give their websites a better look and feel and no prizes for guessing, the popularity of JQuery is increasing by each passing day.

But, JQuery is not anymore limited to websites, but now it will have an extension to the fastest growing world of mobile web as well. The alpha version of a JQuery mobile has already released and expectations are set pretty high for this application.

What is JQuery mobile?

For starters, JQuery is one library with numerous pre-written JavaScript codes and those codes can be modified to the convenience of a user too. JQuery mobile will provide an extension to the general JQuery tools so that it can be under the reach of several mobile browsers available. Not only is that, these JQuery mobiles coming up with absolutely scalable user interface. Most of the top-rated mobile web browsers are compatible with a JQuery mobile such as Google’s Android, Apple’s iOS, BlackBerry OS, Hewlett-Packard’s Web OS, Opera or mobile versions of Windows.

A brief introduction on Mobile Browsing

Previously most of the web developers used to support only devices such as Android or iPhone. Actually, users were using these devices only and therefore webmasters thought implementing those features in a website will do when it comes to mobile browsing.

But, things are indeed changing with the advent of JQuery. What looks good, sells more and JQuery proves this phrase by the truest sense. Implementing jQuery in a website ensures a better visibility and mobile users will not like to be deprived of that at any cost either. Though, implementing it in a mobile browser is a hectic job, as it is a demand of the masses, jQuery mobile is finally a fact, rather than an imagination.

Difference between jQuery implementation in web and mobile browsers

With a powerful hardware and way larger screens, it is not a wonder that implementing any functionality in personal computers is far easier when compared with a mobile web development. Certain features available in PCs may not be possible to implement in mobile browsing however, a simplified implementation can be incorporated. That means showing the options available to a user in a rather structured way than giving them the entire panoply of options.

In such situations, a jQuery mobile can come handy for sure. With this, those native technologies like scroll bars could easily be implemented and in a jQuery mobile, the native functionalities of a browser have always been implemented.

Biggest challenges to be overcome via jQuery mobile

The accommodation of the diversity that a mobile browser offers possibly is the biggest obstacle for a jQuery mobile. This results into poor performance of useful technologies like JavaScript at certain times. To overcome this, in a jQuery mobile, the CSS or Cascading Style Sheet technology has been used for any kind of web page formatting and this seems to have got the rid of performance issues.
