Russian CDN for jQuery

I recently discovered that the biggest Russian search engine Yandex (yeah, it’s bigger than Google in Russia) is using jQuery on its home page. It also hosts all previous jQuery versions on it’s fast gzip enabled servers just like Google and MIcrosoft do.

Because most of the Russian internet users have visited Yandex already, they already have it in their browser cache. I also did route tracing from Russian server to Google CDN servers and I was directed to the server in California, USA and pining the local Russian CDN server was at least 3 times faster.

Anyway, if you decide to use Russian CDN to host your jQuery files here are the links:

Minified versions
