Need a fast CDN for almost every JavaScript framework?

Usually a browser restricts the number of simultaneous connections to a single domain (depending on the browser 2-8 connections). That’s why Yahoo recommends to use a Content Delivery Network (CDN) to decrease the number of connections to the same domain. Lately I’ve been experimenting with…

Using Chrome’s XPath with jQuery

While working with the Chrome Developer Tool I’ve discovered that you can retrieve the XPath of a selected node, But… it only works in Chrome. So what about other browsers? What about jQuery? What about querying documents that resulted from an AJAX request?
