ChakraCore and 10 years of jQuery

Written by Ramon Gebben

ChakraCore (GitHub: Microsoft/ChakraCore, License: MIT)

In case you did not see or hear it yet, Microsoft has open sourced the ChakraCore. ChakraCore is the Javascript engine that powers Microsoft Edge.

The ChakraCore repository provides a fully supported and open-source standalone JavaScript engine, with the same as the Microsoft Edge’s Chakra engine, to embed within your projects.

For more in depth information I would refer you to the official post by Microsoft. When you don’t feel like reading that, just watch this announcement video.

Besides the great news coming from Microsoft, jQuery has a special day to celebrate. The ten year existence of the most used library on the web. The first release was at 14th of January 2006. Since then it has changed a lot and helped evolve the web to the great platform it is nowadays.

Go over to the jQuery blog to read a little bit about the journey to today.
