Internet & Networking "As promised, this version leaves behind the older Internet Explorer 6, 7, and 8 browsers. In return it is smaller, faster, and can be used in JavaScript environments where the code needed for old-IE compatibility often causes problems of its own. But don't worry, the jQuery team still supports the 1.x branch which does run on IE 6/7/8. You can (and should) continue to use jQuery 1.9 (and the upcoming 1.10) on web sites that need to accommodate older browsers."

I don't think these 11kb (zipped) code are comments. This is code that does not have to be executed or maintained. So it is certainly progress. No need for sarcasm.

Yes it is legacy IE code. But the file size isn't the big thing. It is the as you say the speed and maintainability of the code.
