So it is known that you use jQuery while browsing but most of us are unaware of its applications. Let us see the places where we use jQuery to a maximum.
All the animations that we use like the fading effects, sliding effects and staircase effects are because of jQuery. So, without any doubt it is used in almost all of our PowerPoint presentations. In the professional world, we all need to give presentations to our superiors to impress and convince them. And it is known that people get impressed by stylish transitions that are produced by jQuery.
Drop Down Boxes
While browsing, you might have seen drop-down menus. Instead of browsing through various pages and links, you can easily access links by simple drop down boxes. In most cases, these boxes appear in multi colors with various designs and transition styles. These boxes too are an application of jQuery.
