You see, it's not a spherical runtime in vacuum. In practical terms it's more like a whole lot of stuff to download, parse and execute each time your browser hits a new page.


I bet most of the people including JQuery on their pages only use a fraction of its functionality even though it all must be parsed. So what?

jQuery can be cached.
