Best pratice examples...

From design to hosting, 115 best practices are tested and explained. Here are some examples, but be sure to check the other ones:

Development #31

Use primitive operations

Using methods for basic operations uses additional system resources. The interpreter must first resolve the objects and then the methods just to run the simplest of operations.
Therefore, avoid them as much as possible.

Development #43

Do not modify the DOM when traversing

Modifying the DOM (Document Object Model) as you traverse it risks making the loop highly resource-expensive, especially in terms of CPU usage. An infinite loop, which consumes a huge amount of resources, might be generated if we add elements at the same time as we traverse it. It is thus highly recommended to NOT perform such edits.
