Notes:

  • Size is considered with respect to download time. (Smaller is better.) Files have been minified (as provided by developer or yuicompressed) for comparison. That said, size often correlates with functionality (features implemented).
  • JSLint and CSS-Validator results are neither explicit nor implicit measures of quality. The results are not absolute measures and cannot be used for comparison between disparate projects. However, such metrics may be useful in longitudinal / trend analysis.
