What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 134 Stack Exchange communities.

On most Stack Exchange sites, jQuery is served from the Google CDN:

<script type="text/javascript"
 src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.7.1/jquery.min.js">
</script>

On Blog Overflow sites, jQuery is served from the site directly. Not only that, it's served from each *.blogoverflow.com subdomain directly, instead of from a central location. This means that whenever a user visits a different SE blog, they have to redownload the jQuery script all over again.

<script type='text/javascript'
 src='http://bicycles.blogoverflow.com/wp-includes/js/jquery/jquery.js?ver=1.7.1'>
</script>

For performance reasons, the blog overflow template should be altered to use the Google CDN version of jQuery.
