jQuery Loading Fallback


 Nowadays majority of sites uses the jQuery JavaScript library. A lot of them also make use of Google's hosted version of the library from some reasons: faster loading, better cross site caching etc. However, what if there is ever a problem and jQuery is not loaded from Google? For example when you work on localhost and there is no Internet connection? This simple snippet will help you. It basically checks if jQuery is loaded from Google. If not, then it loads it locally from our own version of jQuery.
