Googles jQuery: Are There Avantages to Using It?

Are there any good reasons to pull Google’s jQuery from their servers as opposed to using the one included with WordPress?

I’m confused as to why I might want to use Google’s library. Doesn’t WordPress, with its frequent updates, keep the latest version?

Or am I missing something?

Thanks.

The big advantages are the Google CDN and the client side caching of the library. Your visitor will probably have a version of the jquery library in the browsers cache already, so he doesn’t have to re-download the script from the local version used by WordPress.

One big disadvantage by including the library from the cloud: You have to trust Google.
