I have noticed that jquery loading time on the website has been really slow for quite some time. After some researching I have found a plugin that uses Google’s ajax libraries api for processing my requests, therefore taking the load of my server.
This provides numerous potential performance benefits:
- increases the chance that a user already has these files cached
- takes load off your server
- uses compressed versions of the libraries (where available)
- Google’s servers are set up to negotiate HTTP compression with the requesting browser”
