Yahoo YUI wins JavaScript Library Wars

There is huge web development news from Yahoo today. Yahoo is offering free hosting for YUI components, both JavaScript and CSS. I’ve been favoring the YUI, but this is a great boon. One big drawback to AJAX is Page loading performance. I’m betting that the Yahoo infrastructure can serve these files way faster than most people’s servers, they are much more likely to be cached, and by being located on a different domain, they circumvent domain connection limits in the browser. By offering hosting, Yahoo turns YUI into a true shared library for the internet.
