CDNJS used to be a viable resource, and a great idea. Unfortunately, three years later, the maintainers have added so much cruft and useless layers of bureaucracy that makes it so difficult to add new libraries, that contributors are walking away rather than deal with the technical issues and arrogance of the maintainers. I'm sorry to say that the useful days of CDNJS are gone.
In addition to having a great service, a powerful API and a perfect uptime the one thing that's really awesome about Fastly is their support. They respond really fast, are very knowledgeable, and do everything they can to help you with your problem (and that includes 1-to-1 chat on irc, skype/hangout call, etc.). Such a great experience.
Incredible. Lets us cache dynamic pages. Makes other CDNs feel like unwieldy beasts. Support is second to none.
