The company who brought you the jQuery JavaScript framework, appendTo, this week released the results of a study which showed that the percentage of websites that have deployed jQuery has grown larger than those websites which have deployed Adobe Flash.

Using statistics from the HTTP Archive that came from analyzing the top 17,000 websites on the web, the study indicated that 48 percent of sites are using jQuery, while only 47 percent are using Adobe Flash.

The co-founder and CEO of appendTo, Mike Hostetler, believes that newer projects are being created using jQuery, rather than Flash, and stated that "Developers are choosing jQuery over Flash for new development. This data confirms a trend that’s been a couple years in the making. More and more website developers are choosing jQuery and JavaScript over Flash."
