Summary

In this chapter, we've delved deeper into jQuery's extensive capabilities for finding elements in a document. We've looked at some of the details of how the Sizzle selector engine works, and the implications this has on designing effective and efficient code. In addition, we have explored the ways in which we can extend and enhance jQuery's selectors and DOM traversal methods.
