I realise that jquery is in use on a great many website but it's
interesting to read why one large site has stopped

The main reasons given are
"Fewer kb sent to visitors, more explicit syntax when performing DOM
manipulations, ability to use Flowjs for static type checking"

I have always said (at least thought), and I still stand by it:
“If jQuery is not already obsolete now, it will become obsolete.
Therefore, too, it is a mistake to make everything depend on jQuery.”

JQuery is an insult to the elegance of Javascript.
