Learn JavaScript – How To Make Page Redirect Using jQuery

In programming languages, functions are often gathered together in packages and methods ready for use. They are called frameworks and aim to help developers save time to get the expected result.

In JavaScript, jQuery is one of these frameworks, and we’ll take a closer look at it and how to make a page redirect using it.

What is jQuery?

It is a framework for JavaScript. jQuery is designed keeping in mind the slogan “Write less, the more” (Write less, do more). The purpose of jQuery is to make it easier to use Javascript on websites. It replaces complicated and major tasks for faster JavaScript functions and compatible with most browsers.
