jQuery: Come up with a new slogan?

Posted in Jquery by rip747 on December 7, 2006

So there is a thread going on on Nabble on the effort to convert people over to jQuery. We’re not talking about a religious conversion here, just an effort to get people to take a look at jQuery and get it more exposure. One of the posters commented that maybe we ought to come up with a new slogan besides “New Wave JavaScript”, something catchier and describes the power of using it.

This is something that I think jQuery could use. As people have pointed out, a catchy slogan makes all the difference in marketing, no matter what the product, even if it is a JavaScript toolkit. To date, I think the best slogan I have seen for any of the toolkits out there, hands down, goes to Mochikit – “Makes JavaScript suck less.” This is just funny, brilliant and to the point: JavaScript sucks and anything that can make it easier for me is worth the investment to look into.

With that, I think we ought to run with this. Let’s see if anyone out there has a cool, upbeat, funny, catchy new slogan for my favorite toolkit, and yours, jQuery. Leave a comment here with your slogan or vote for one that someone posts. I’ll tally them up at the end of the month and send the top suggestions to John. Who knows, he might like one of them and decided to use it or he might decide not to use any of them and stick with the current one. In any event it should be fun seeing what the community and other people come up with.

I’ll go first:

jQuery: one line, unlimited power.

jQuery: Making JavaScript it’s bitch.

jQuery: Dominate the DOM

    Here’s a couple:

    jQuery – Move over JavaScript
    jQuery – JavaScript never felt so good

    Or some other wanky trash like that 😛 hehehe…

    I think you’re on to something with the trashy slogan. I like them both. Ok, ok, taking your advice what about:

    jQuery: Making JavaScript it’s bitch.

    jQuery: Faster scripting – Better results
    jQuery: No More (Javascript) Tears
    jQuery: Simple, Effective, Your Javascript Savior
    jQuery: Time efficient Javascript
    jQuery: Get results – Get jQuery
    jQuery: The Javascript Pull-off
    jQuery: Javascript Cloaking Device
    jQuery: Enslaving Javascript
    jQuery: Leaving Bullscript(s) in the Sand

    Might return with more brainstorming on this… Personally I like the last entry
