Both compressed and uncompressed versions of jQuery can be downloaded free from the internet. A compressed version should be used in the production environment whereas the uncompressed version is to be used in a development environment. Compressed version minimizes the library by eliminating extra white space, line feed and shortening the variable and function names. So the compressed version is not readable. An uncompressed library is readable, hence useful in debugging. Once the appropriate version is downloaded, it can be referenced in a file using a script tag.
jQuery can be used in two ways
● Local installation: download the jQuery library on your local machine and include it on your HTML code.
● CDN Based Version: you can include the jQuery library into your HTML code directly from a content delivery network. Google and Microsoft provide content delivery for the latest version.

10 Important Uses of JQuery
2. DOM Manipulation
jQuery makes it easy to select DOM elements, using a cross-browser open source selector engine called Sizzle to negotiate and modify them.
3. Animations and AJAX support
jQuery has a large number of built-in animation effects. It can also help you develop responsive and feature-rich sites using AJAX technology. Therefore, most web developers prefer to use jQuery to make web pages more exciting, interactive, cleaner, and more user-friendly
4. Cross-browser support
5. Write Less, Do More
6. Ease of learning
7. Search engine optimized
Some jQuery effects are almost the same as Flash, but everything in jQuery is set to text. This makes jQuery smaller than Flash, and all search engine robots can read the content.
8. Easy integration with Visual Studio IDE
Visual Studio provides extensions to help integrate the jQuery library into the .Net framework project. The Visual Studio 2010 version supports the integration of the JQuery library into the .Net framework. The NuGet package extension for Visual Studio facilitates this integration. With the help of this integration, the IntelliSense function of visual studio is turned on. All jQuery methods of this function are automatically filled, and errors will be displayed where there is a syntax error.
