It seems it might have made things worse :(
Revert to jQuery 1.7.2 in https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/#/c/22555/
Guys we need something more tangible than "this blob with 2 million lines of code thrown together from 100+ different modules in browser X on wiki Y is slower".
A revert may do for the short term but not very sustainable, obviously.
There's half a dozen things that are significantly improved in performance in jQuery 1.8 over 1.7. We need to narrow it down, a lot.

Reedy: Can this be closed? I don't see any other tickets left here, but I have no idea if you expect further regressions to be found.
1.8.1 has been integrated and released without issues.
We've since upgraded twice (to 1.8.2 and 1.8.3).
