The latest Firefox will have support for this, I'm wondering if support is wide enough now to consider adding it to any of the manipulation logic paths.

It's an awesome idea. The Mozilla Team wrote an article about the better performance of this function:

It would be nice if we could totally replace our fragment cache with insertAdjacentHTML instead. That would mitigate the code bloat and eliminate the pseudo-leak that the frag cache causes. However we'd need to see how iAH handles the cases already in .clean() which are primarily IE 6/7/8 workarounds.

If it removes the need for clean, it would be worth the extra codepath.

#10804 is a duplicate of this ticket.

(In #10903) None of the HTML processing code in jQuery.clean or jQuery.buildFragment currently attaches content to the document, that's done later when the method-specific callback (e.g., append, prepend, before, after) is called. So this isn't a simple change and a very cornery case.

However, we've been talking about using insertAdjacentHTML in #10515 which might solve this problem so I'll leave it open. If it can't be worked in there I think we will close this wontfix.

Pull request at for one narrow but common case, $(selector).append(html), but I'd like to see perfs before landing it.

Thoroughly investigated by @orkel in and we came to the conclusion that there is no significant benefit.
