List of Neat Public CDN

Recommended FREE Public CDN
CDN : Content Delivery Network.
A content delivery network or content distribution network (CDN) is a large distributed system of servers deployed in multiple data centers across the Internet.
Speed up your AJAX (Asynchronous  JavaScript and XML) applications with these.

Google's CDN
Widely used on the internet. Hosts JavaScript libraries (and CSS files for jQuery UI and jQuery Mobile - basic theme) :
  • AngularJS
  • Chrome Frame
  • Dojo
  • Ext Core
  • jQuery
  • jQuery UI
  • jQuery Mobile
  • MooTools
  • Prototype
  • script_aculo_us
  • SWFObject
  • Web Font Loader
Go to Google's Hosted Libraries

Microsoft's CDN

Hosts JavaScript libraries and CSS files of the following :
  • jQuery
  • jQuery Migrate
  • jQueryUI
  • jQuery Validation
  • jQuery Mobile
  • jQuery Template
  • jQuery Cycle
  • jQuery DataTables
  • Modernizr
  • JSHint
  • Knockout
  • Globalize
  • Bootstrap
  • ASP.NET Ajax
  • ASP.NET Web Forms
  • ASP.NET SignalR
  • AJAX Control Toolkit
They also generously provide fallback method of switching between CDNs.
Go to Microsoft Ajax CDN

Powered by CloudFlare. Hosts everything. JavaScript libraries, CSS libraries, SWF objects, images (UI icons) and even moar! You can also submit your libraries.
Tons of awesomeness-es. You can find any library you might need and it will be delivered with lightning speed. No problem for cross-domain thingy.
For instance, they already have libraries for :
  • jQueryUI  (JS and CSS)
  • SyntaxHighlighter (JS and CSS)
  • PrefixFree (JS)
  • Normalize (CSS)
  • Reset (CSS)
  • Modernizr (JS)
  • Twitter Bootstrap (JS and CSS)
  • Prettify (JS and CSS)
  • MathJax (JS and images) 
  • Social Likes (everything, JS, JSON, CSS, images, etc)
And still many, many moar!

Used in WordPress. Hosts lots more than Google's or Microsoft's. But, not as "complete" as CDNJS, yet. There are JS, CSS, images, etc. You can submit your libraries too there.
The libraries and contents will be robustly delivered with the speed you can count on. Also, no problem for cross-domain thingy.
