It’s 2014, the browsers have developed enough to handle all the ui work without any plugin.(mostly)
Unless you still need to support IE8 it doesn’t make sense to use jQuery for most projects and applications especialy a plugin.
In several test people have found native functions a 20-60x times of jQuery equivalent function. Do you think it still makes sense to use jquery
This talk will tell you about
