And Jquery was literally used in 90+% of EVERYTHING on the web for a long time.
I missed that boat...
Be glad, it was not a great time for frontend development
What is wrong with Jquery? An extra 200kb never killed any page no?
Nothing is "wrong" with Jquery. But I literally write vanilla JS faster than Jquery (because I don't use Jquery, so I always have to refer to the docs more often.) Modern JS isn't hard. If somebody has to use Jquery because they can't write vanilla JS they are holding themselves back. So for me, an extra 200kb of dead weight I don't use, would bother me.
