I really like the proto/script combination, and use it most of my  
sites. Showing and hiding forms and quick ajax stuff is really easy.

Though, sometimes prototype is a little too much, and if I need some  
nice effects in a small package, I'll use mootools[1].

I've played with JQuery some, but didn't like it because  
it.was.filledWith.tooMany.trainWrecks(); .
