Recently I've been working on removing jQuery from pdf2htmlEX.js.
A few days ago when I was trying to optimizing JS code, I found jQuery is really large (~90K minimized), while all other js and css files are no bigger than ~10K in total. Also lots of results from jsperf.com show that jQuery is really slow.
I can indeed feel a boost on performance after the removal of jQuery, but the modification is likely to cause regression, although I've checked caniuse.com for each API I used. I've tested the code on Firefox/Chrome on Linux, and I'll test on others as well.
- IE >= 9
- Recent versions of Firefox / Chrome / Safari
Please help test (the git version of) pdf2htmlEX with your browser and file bugs if any. Thanks!
