jquery is impressive for elegant simple stuff.

YUI is impressive for mid-range stuff and a decent set of widgets.

I'm personally sticking with dojo since their architecture is the  
sanest from my POV, but it -is- big and it does require some source- 
diving; since I tend to RTFS more than the docs even when docs *do*  
exist it doesn't bother me in the slightest, but I quite happily  
accept that it isn't for the faint hearted or for those who're more  
interested in convenience than power :)
