These surveys as indicating as they are do leave out new emerging solution that under the statistic radar but still suggests new approach that might supersede any current solution. One of them seems to be a new solution that stands out of the rest by the simplicity, ease of adaptation and the ability to offer a valid solution for complexities of enterprise grade apps. security concerns and its different approach. Worth taking a look at Visual WebGui web site.

Reasonably predictable results, and good to finally hear someone say nobody uses .NET 1- How many participants did the survey have 2- Why wait 4 months for the result? 3- Where is mootools (easy light and free) 4- Where is Backbase 4 (heavy but very complete and clean, and free)

Ah, I remember the entry for the survey, had the same rants in the comments and so many people pointed out that its useless. And now we can see in the results that they where true :-) +1 point for MooTools and I wanne hug everyone in their cuddly community, we snuggle all day ... seriously, using the popular "considered harmful" phrase: Using JavaScript frameworks without any JS skills or without the will to learn some JS considered harmful! Anyway, nice try for a useful survey, better luck for the next time.

i think moo is great - from an engineering and documentation perspective. however, community is just as important to long term success imho. it's their right to act anyway they want. just think it's short sighted (actually more like immature)

Next year, when asking about frameworks/libs branch between backend & frontend use please. As for backend use my money is on Ext ;)

I started with Dojo and have been gradually shifting over to Moo, but I absolutely agree about the attitude on the forum.

maybe if mootools fostered their community instead of actively trying to drive "noobs" away they would do better on these popularity contests. the height of irony to complain about getting hosed. mootools hoses themselves with their elitist attitude. can't have it both ways.

The amount of participants is one of the most important aspects of such a set of numbers -- if I managed to miss it, someone please point it out. If it's not there, add it before you embarrass yourself any further. (And yes, as a professed MochiKit fanboi, I'm sad that that library -- and mootools -- are not mentioned as separate numbers.)

Wow. Those charts are almost useless. Anyone ever heard of a fellow named Tufte?!? Please.

.NET solutions cost too much money. Money with development tools, plus money for servers. The few people that use it (like myself) use it at work, that's it.

Statistics are the way forward. Would be interested to see how many people are using Ruby? Anyone have any ideas?

Any chance getting hold of the raw data? I'd like to see what a JOIN between framework and application type looks like (i.e. which frameworks are used for full apps and which for prettifying web pages).
