Use Google Libraries

This is a great plugin to save on your bandwidth and improve the performance of your site. It uses compressed version of your script by substituting your JavaScript libraries with Google’s own CDN. This saves on bandwidth, keeps using compressed versions of the scripts, and increases the chance that a user already has these files cached and therefore increases the general performance of your site.
