jQuery is a fast and lightweight JavaScript that is also CSS3 compliant. It was introduced by John Resig on January 2006. jQuery is free and open source software.

In the jQuery official website, jQuery is expressed as jQuery is designed to change the way that you write JavaScript.

jQuery emphasizes on the interaction between JavaScript and HTML. JavaScript is a language whereas jQuery is a library written using JavaScript.jQuery resides as a single JavaScript file, containing all the common DOM, Event, Effects, and Ajax functions.

It is compatible with many browsers. The jQuery framework is capable to be extended and very adequately handles DOM (Document Object Model) manipulations, CSS, AJAX, Events and Animations.

Both Microsoft and Nokia have announced plans to bundle jQuery on their platforms, Microsoft will be partnering with the jQuery team and shipping jQuery with Visual Studio in future. Also, jQuery intelligence annotation support will be available as a free web-download. At the same time Nokia will incorporate it into their Web Run-Time platform.
