removeClass vs native JS remove class

JavaScript performance comparison

Revision 5 of this test case created

Info

I was curious to see which method was faster... removing a class using jQuery's removeClass function or by doing it myself in native JavaScript.

Preparation code

<script src="//ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1/jquery.js"></script>
 <div id="rightChild" class="test2">
      right child
 </div>

Preparation code output

right child
