I am using a progress bar on my page that uses javascript from a hosted library link copied below.

Is it a reliable practice?

What if this site stops hosting this library? Can I host the code locally?
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.8.3/jquery.min.js"></script>

Open in new window


Thanks.
