Submission + - Vanilla JS Used On More Sites Than jQuery (i-programmer.info)

mikejuk writes: If you are looking for a new framework to help you build a web site, then you need to know about Vanilla JS. This is the most powerful and lightweight of all the frameworks. It is already in use by a huge number of websites and autodownloaded by most browsers. Benchmarks show that the best alternative framework is less more than twice as slow and everyone's favourite jQuery is four times slower. Just think of all that speed you are giving up! Other benchmarks reveal an even bigger advantage for Vanilla JS .

Long computations which yield zero are probably all for naught.
