Introduce $(con).$(sel) for context based queries instead of $(sel, con)

$(selector, context) is not really intuitive.

$(context).$(selector) would be much more, jQuery is ''all about chainging''.


jQuery(context).jQuery(selector) can be supported as well.


jQuery.fn.jquery is in use (lowercase Q), but there is no case-sensitive conflict. Most people use $() anyway.

You're looking for .find().

You're looking for .find().

Many people don't know about it.

Additionally, $().$() would lessen what one needs to learn, thus reducing complexity.
