Article Continues Below

One of jQuery’s strengths is that it allows one to act on entire groups of elements without writing out a for loop or using jQuery’s each method to iterate through every element.

This post from Elijah Manor will help you to identify some of jQuery’s “implicit” loops and outlines some of their performance implications.
