Falls short in speed. Check my updates tip for a link to a perf test between browser cache and localStorage.

this tip in vanilla js = document.getElementById('foo').querySelector('a'). just throwing that in there so the practice can extend into non-jquery js apps.

burntime, those results are crazy. looks like i can write a selector any way i want to now. is it jquery fixing and optimizing my bad selector or is the browser?
