Matt Hobbs v2.0 💉💉💉💉 on Twitter: "🧵As I mentioned last week https://t.co/CcU3PLPTpj removed jQuery as a dependency for all frontend apps, meaning 32 KB of minified & compressed JS was removed. So let's see what difference this has made for users[^]

The discussion at Slashdot:
Why Gov.UK Stopped Using jQuery - Slashdot[^]

Is this reasonable when you're using 3rd party libraries, or at all? Folks on slashdot make the argument that jQuery isn't needed because modern browsers behave better, and that standard javascript does all the same stuff nowadays. (I don't know enough about the nuances to have an opinion either way.)

The twitter poster shows some graphs that highlight the benefits of getting rid of jquery, but never once mentions other frameworks, like Angular, NodeJS, or TypeScript (none of which I know anything about).
