  • This question does not appear to be about webmastering within the scope defined in the help center.
If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

One big advantage to using a CDN for commonly used files like jquery is that so many other webmasters do it, and therefore visitors already have it cached locally. This means they won't need to download it at all when arriving at your site. – Tom Brossman Oct 15 '13 at 11:33
While this question may be best suited for Pro Webmasters its unnecessary to create another question based on the same question found on another Stack Exchange with 'Great Answers' if you believe that your question is different from that on the Stack Overflow site then please adjust your question and make it more specific. Additionally I've forwarded this action to the other moderators for further review of my actions, there decision will be final and not for debate. Sorry and thanks. – Simon Hayter Oct 15 '13 at 12:25
