I see your point and I agree with you, why use jQuery if that's not helpful anymore.

Still size matters. 30kb is like loading React. I'm considering the mobile world, old devices and poor network connections. For that I have metrics. It can add up to 1s on very old devices, especially old android. It adds precious milliseconds on mobile devices.

Don't get me wrong, removing jQuery is not the top priority to improve performances, there are way better leverages before, but it's not useless.

It's all about your analytics, knowing your audience and devices used.
