There are a vast number of plugins for jQuery and other frameworks that I encourage you to explore. I’m not going to list any of them here. However I have listed a somewhat random assortment of stand alone libraries that are useful to know about.
If you’re interested in testing frameworks, checkout stackoverflow for a great discussion on your options.
These lists are absolutely a work in progress so if you’ve got any suggestions for me please post in comments. I’ll also continue to add to them as I discover new and interesting libraries.
