I shared the stat that 85% of websites include jQuery on Reddit:

What’s interesting to me is how prevalent the opinion is that jQuery is still necessary today, either out of convenience or because it’s bundled with web dev tools like the CMS (WordPress) or design system (Bootstrap).

Curious to see how this sentiment changes over the years, but given how long jQuery has been with us I don’t expect any sudden changes in opinion.
