jQuery 1.8 — The Aftermath

Tickets to discuss


  • .width() needs to know box-sizing now
  • Requires gCS which is 100x slow, esp in Chrome
  • Most people really want .css(“width”)
  • For now, advise that they use it ^^
  • mikesherov to look at options for speeding up .width()

Tickets and PRs we need to land (mark as blocker)
