    Umbrella JS vs YUI opinions
    pros, cons and recent comments

    YUI is much more than a DOM manipulation tool, it features complex widgets and tools for dialog panels, data tables, drag and drop elements, etc.

    Even the prolific jQuery library is a poor comparison without jQueryUI and a host of other plugins.
