comment Why don't browsers have jQuery installed?
@njzk2 my point is that caching clearly doesn't suffice. Maybe an improved version of caching would work. Something that prevents the same library to be downloaded form yet another CDN or website.

comment Why don't browsers have jQuery installed?
the question is - why does a user need to make new downloads from sites or CDNs for something that he already has? jQuery is served from many locations and in many versions. I am concerned about page speed and users are concerned about (especially mobile) bandwidth. If there's a gold standard for a library - then why not use it? There are other examples sure and I would welcome those too - as long as there's an agreed upon standard for them (like a version number).

comment Why don't browsers have jQuery installed?
I understand this, but I am now using code.jquery.com as CDN. However, when another website uses googleapis or cdjns the browser will AGAIN download jQuery from that other CDN. That just doesn't make sense and costs a lot of time/bandwidth all over the place. If you add to this that in most cases people would like something like jQuery1.7+ then it gets even worse. I understand your point about browsers not being repositories, but wouldn't we be able to come up with some kind of 'cache from multiple sources' kind of rule?

comment Turn Site into a PDF
you can add a link to each page that turns a page into a PDF - see htm2pdf.co.uk/save-as-pdf - i don't think you can convert the WHOLE site into one PDF
