Home Forums JavaScript To Use WP jQuery or Not? Re: To Use WP jQuery or Not?


The thing is that if people are using the WordPress version, there is a greater chance of it being cached, because WP will be using a fixed version.

Using the Google version, which is a CDN (so it’s very fast) may have more or less caching depending on the version you use, but its non-cached loading speed will be faster.

I don’t think that the speed makes too much difference unless you’re loading lots of js scripts and images, etc.
