    I am building my first javascript heavy site right now and I have a little bit of experience with jQuery. However, I have heard a lot of buzz about Angular.

    What are the pros and cons of those two frameworks?

    I am pretty happy using jQuery.. really easy to use, hell lot of plugins, plus you can find any sample snippets you might need if you simply google them..

    I didn't know about AngularJS. One thing that caught my attention was deep linking but it's also possible with the JQuery.history plugin. If you like the MVC approach go with AngularJS otherwise JQuery is great.

    You can use both, really.
    Angular is great for content management, whereas jQuery is much more gimmicky but may provide more functions for you.

    Depending on what you want to do. Are you building an app like gmail, or a javascript intensive application? Then use angularjs.
    If you want to bind click events, move things around, make ajax calls, then use jQuery. jQuery is there to make JavaScript tasks easier to code.

    I will always go with jQuery, because it is easy to learn and master, and has a lot of documentation...

    Use the right tool for the right job as SEOCoder said above: these two are apples and oranges.

    You should compare angular with ember, backbone etc not with JQ
