jQuery selector vs built-in selector wrapped in jQuery

JavaScript performance comparison

Revision 83 of this test case created by Henry Zou

Info

Changes to rev 26 (rev 27 is worse):
- repositioning xpath
- remove foo + checks for it (search for selecting elem by id once is enough)
- remove getElementById("poo") in querySelector (Class) & jQuery Class Selector for a true comparison of the algorithms.
- jQuery Class Selector -> jQuery w. querySelector
- added real jQuery ClassSelector

Preparation code

<script src="//ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1/jquery.min.js">
</script>
<p id="bar" class="my-bar">
  Bar
</p>
<div id="poo" class="my-poo">
  <div id="par" class="my-bar">
    <div id="paz" class="my-bar">
      <span id="baz" class="my-baz">
        Baz
      </span>
    </div>
  </div>
</div>

Preparation code output
