jQuery script size
|Reported by:||jestro||Owned by:||azaozz|
The size of the included jQuery script has ballooned up to 74KB in the latest 3.0 RC, nearly 3 times the size of the minified jQuery 1.4.2 script (24KB). This is adds a ton of unnecessary bloat / load time when the script is enqueued by theme or plugin authors. It appears Sizzle is included inside the jQuery script. In the spirit of keeping WP lightweight, fast, and modular, Sizzle should be extracted and jquery.js should include jQuery only.
