See, the internet, and the technology that powers it, has grown in leaps and bounds over the past years. We moved from static sites to web applications to dynamic web applications and then to real time, hyper responsive, thingamabob apps of today. One thing that has snuck past most radars has been the rise of mobile devices.

Think about it: a lot of us use smart phones and use it for browsing on a constant basis. Even at home, a non-trivial portion of my circle has adopted a tablet device for casual surfing and email. While this influx of devices is good from an exposure point of view, it isn't without its caveats.

Instead of thinking of these devices as display constrained like consumers do, we, as developers, need to think of them in terms of resources and bandwidth. Not all them sport a hyper quad gajillion Ghz CPU or come with oodles of memory. And let's not even get started with the bandwidth. A big portion of the browsing population is still stuck on these infernal excuses for a mobile internet connection.

I think you see where I'm going with this. Big, monolithic libraries like jQuery or Prototype definitely have their place but for this mobile era, I think there's a place for something that's a lot more nimble. And a lot of developers seem to agree with me.
