Hi Matthew,

Reading the second paragraph of this Insight it appears that JQuery has better performance stats than JavaScript:

"According to some tests JavaScript performance can be 4 to 5 times slower than on a high end laptop. In general it’s wise to use as little JavaScript as possible in mobile site’s and to try to avoid bulky frameworks and plug-ins whenever possible."

I expected JavaScript to be faster than JQuery and therefore the preferred option.
