The plugin is lightweight and does its job, but you can’t say it’s really lightweight if your code line depends on jQuery which is considered too heavy a library. You should use native vanilla Javascript, not jQuery. There are Themes and Plugins that do not depend on jQuery in order not to alter the performance of the website. This is not the case. Update: The author stopped relying on jQuery code, replaced it with the native one which makes the website more optimal.

I must have tested about 10 different plugins, always with exaggerated, complicated, unnecessary options and in order to sell a paid plan. In this plugin I could find everything I need: customize colors, messages and notification positions. Simple and functional. Thanks!!
