I Still Love jQuery — And You Should, Too.
Sam Oldenburg

The worse thing about jQuery is it makes it too easy to do everything in one function, so you see tons of sloppy code which does data binding, controller functionality, model and dom manipulation all squashed in together. This makes the code a mess and hard to test.

Definitely this is the fault of the developer not the tool but more recent libraries have been created with a test first mindset which helps makes the code less tightly coupled, less brittle and generally easier/faster to work with.
