#Bootstrap without jQuery

A lightweight script to replace jQuery for simple interactions when using Twitter Bootstrap.
Bootstrap requires jQuery for some components such as dropdowns, alerts and the little "hamburger" icon that triggers a collapsible menu. While jQuery is an excellent cross-browser framework, it can be overkill if it's only used for displaying and hiding things. Of course, if a project already uses jQuery then there's no problem, but if not here's a script to replace jQuery and some of the Bootstrap plugin scripts. Using this should reduce download size and speed up loading time for your users.
Bootstrap 2 and 3
- Collapsible elements (e.g. "hamburger" menu icon)
- Dismissable alert boxes
- Dropdown menus
You can see the script in action in these simple demos:

onblurdoesn't fire when attached to
buttonelements. This affects the dropdown menus so please use
aelements instead for these.
I'd really appreciate a quick comment on whether it works in your browser or not.
