while its important that you have to follow the current industry standards,i believe beginners shouldn't be worrying too much about browser compatibility, having minimum page sizes when they are new to the ecosystem.

They should be more focused on learning how the DOM works, how events are handled etc. Jquery will definitively help them have a clear understanding on those things but in much more easier way to understand.

once they get comfortable they should be able to work on vainaJS too.

If I shouldn't worry about browser compatibility, then why should I bother with jQuery? 🤔
