    And I think we all could come op with 25 more points we shouldn't be doing anymore.

    One more article on how to stop using jQuery.

But really we all should stop just using jQuery, it's way too big for most of the times that we use it. Yes, it's fast and easy to develop with, but our users don't fregging care. And it's for them that we really build stuff, so go and tell your clients that speed is key.
