A Tiny Yet Powerful Alternative to jQuery

jQuery has been by far the most popular JavaScript library for the last 5 years. It’s powerful, easy to use, and widespread. However, the latest jQuery release is 250kb. Since website speed is extremely important, what about giving Umbrella JS, which is only 4kb, a try? Let’s have a look at this new and promising JavaScript library.
Why Umbrella JS?
jQuery is an amazing piece of code! Since its first release in 2006, jQuery has played a key role in shaping the web as we know it nowadays. Still, every now and then a new JavaScript library is released. One that caught my attention lately is Umbrella JS, a library heavily influenced by jQuery, but way more compact (3kb!) and limited to DOM manipulation, events, and Ajax.
