Ditching jQuery for Vanilla JS

Ditching jQuery for Vanilla JS | BackboneJS |

One of the benefits of a framework like jQuery is that it smooths out all of the weird browser inconsistencies you might run into. But, all that abstraction and extra code adds a lot of weight and latency to a site.

Rather than trying to provide the same level of functionality for older browsers, I took a progressive enhancement approach to development. Older and less capable browsers get a basic experience. Newer browsers that support modern APIs get an enhanced one.

To be clear, I’m not advocating dropping support for older and less capable browsers. They still have access to all of the content. They just don’t always get the same layout or extra features.
