FF Extension shows how much of the jQuery library a page is actually using. Neat.

    I haven’t seen this before or thought about it but, but now that I do it’s interesting.

    We load the entire jQuery library, but I would be that most of us use only a fraction of it on any give website. I’ll probably never do anything about it, but it is an interesting philosophical issue.

    Thanks for that info. I agree its kind of neat – and for a second I thought about reducing the library (knowing I only use a small portion of it on most of my sites). But then I remembered the cache. Chances are, most people already have the library cached and a smaller library would actually be an extra request.
