The results are here. You can create more crosstabs if you like; there’s quite a bit of information there. Note that it’s not possible to close an Urtak poll, so people will continue to send in responses, and percentages might change gradually.
|In general, do you feel micro-libraries are a better approach than general full-scale libraries like jQuery, YUI, or MooTools?||47%|
|Have you used a micro-framework library such as qwery, reqwest, bonzo, or domReady in the last year?||17%|
For each library I asked two questions:
People who said Yes to the first question are users; those who said Yes to the second question are frequent users. The crosstab column shows the percentage of those who answered the first question with Yes who also answered the second question with Yes. Note: If the first question was answered with Yes by less than 100 people I did not calculate the crosstab.
So 58% of the respondents used Modernizr at least once in the past year, 35% used it in at least 50% of his projects, and of those who used it at least once, 57% used it in at least 50% of his projects.
Raphael, Zepto, and Sencha Touch score low on the crosstab. Evidently people don’t use it in many projects, although all three are used reasonably well. The reason is most likely that these libraries are for very specific use cases that don’t occur in all projects.
