The Chosen jQuery plugin is widely used in Joomla 3 and is primarily used to 'beautify' html select boxes. Many components load it but it may stand in the way in some website designs. While some extensions may give you the option to skip the plugin, you may not have any possibility to remove it. Let see how jQuery Easy Profiles, developed for Joomla, can help.

Here is a case study I wanted to share, as I was researching the best way to correct such a mess, with the help of the jQuery Easy plugin. In this study, we will handle jQuery/MooTools conflicts and allow jQuery extensions to use their own variables.

jQuery v3 is the lightest, fastest version of jQuery to date, removing support to IE6-8 (like the previous 2.x branch).

The upcoming Joomla v4 will come packaged with jQuery without Migrate. If you are planning on using jQuery a little bit longer, now is the time to check your scripts.

Old scripts built for earlier versions of jQuery may 'break' with jQuery v3, but thankfully, the jQuery team has provided an updated version of the Migrate plugin to help identify compatibility issues.
