Avoid jQuery When Possible

jQuery does good jobs when you're dealing with browser compatibility. But we're living in an age that fewer and fewer people use old-school browsers such as IE <= 7. With the growing of DOM APIs in modern browsers (including IE 8), most functions that jQuery provides are built-in natively.

When targeting only modern browsers, it is better to avoid using jQuery's backward-compatible features. Instead, use the native DOM API, which will make your web page run much faster than you might think (native C / C++ implementaion v.s. JavaScript).

If you're making a web page for iOS (e.g. UIWebView), you should use native DOM APIs because mobile Safari is not that old-school web browser; it supports lots of native DOM APIs.

If you're making a Chrome Extension, you should always use native APIs, not only because Chrome has almost the latest DOM APIs available, but this can also avoid performance issue and unnecessary memory occupation (each jQuery-driven extension needs a separate

Pagination 101

Article by Faruk Ateş, [originally on KuraFire.net][original] which is currently down

One of the most commonly overlooked and under-refined elements of a website is its pagination controls. In many cases, these are treated as an afterthought. I rarely come across a website that has decent pagination, and it always makes me wonder why so few manage to get it right. After all, I'd say that pagination is pretty easy to get right. Alas, that doesn't seem the case, so after encouragement from Chris Messina on Flickr I decided to write my Pagination 101, hopefully it'll give you some clues as to what makes good pagination.

Before going into analyzing good and bad pagination, I want to explain just what I consider to be pagination: Pagination is any kind of control system that lets the user browse through pages of search results, archives, or any other kind of continued content. Search results are the o
