Improve page load performance by asynchronously loading javascript using head.js

== Description ==

This plugin is meant to be a drop-in to your wordpress installation with no additional configuration. The goals/features of this plugin are:

* Load javascript files in an asynchronous manner to improve time to DomReady/OnLoad
* Use existing wordpress APIs for backwards compatability and prevent coupling to this plugin
* Leverage dependency model wordpress provides for assets to improve loading performance

Please submit bugs or contributions to the github location and not here on wordpress' system:

SEO: async js, asynchronous js, async javascript

== Installation ==

1. Upload `asynchronous-javascript` folder to the `/wp-content/plugins/` directory
2. Activate the plugin through the 'Plugins' menu in WordPress

== Frequently Asked Questions ==

= Is there any potential problems with other plugins? =

As long as those plugins are using the built-in wordpress script queuing and not attempting to output scripts manually (such as invoking wp_print_scripts()), you should have no problems. If you find plugins that don't work properly (or without modifications), let me know and I will maintain an incompatibility list.

== Incompatibility ==

This plugin will not work out the box with the following plugins (unless they are modified to support asynchronous loading).

* Jetpack by (social plugin)
* WP Most Popular
