Showing results for tags '$object'.
Hello All, So you frequently see reductions with commonly used objects such as: var $this = $(this)//Or....var $objectName = $('.className') Is there any places or reason why you would chose to use the $ before the var name to create an object as oppose to just making a normal variable? I'm looking to find and replace the objects with these sorts of variables to reduce file size, make it easier to read, and hopefully speed up load time but to check with experts before I potentially F#$! up my work. Thoughts? Also, any thoughts on how to structure code (in general) to run most efficiently would be helpful. I auditioned a very scant, un-skinned version of my page on the server and it took much longer than I expected to load (on my itty bitty netbook of which I think some cell phones have more processing power). Thanks!
