Removing jQuery

I saw this old thread about removing jQuery

Is this possible now? I’m investigating moving off my old Wordpress site to something modern, and I really want a clean starting point with no legacy code like jQuery etc.

Nope. jQuery is part of the site build and Webflow has dependencies.

Ok too bad, and quite surprising. Even more surprised to see code like this as part of the markup Webflow generates:

IE8…

<!--[if lte IE 9]><script src="//cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/placeholders/3.0.2/placeholders.min.js"></script><![endif]-->

I would love it if there was a ‘modern’ mode of Webflow so we can optimize for the site for modern users and not have jQuery or similar things around.

Funny, I have been moving Webflow sites to something more modern → Wordpress headless.
