Well not really much. Developers will get the dependencies as they work (using bower or whatever the JS dep manager tool of the week is), and then build a single JS file at deployment time (using webblywobblify or the JS build tool of the week), and that goes up to the server for production. I doubt anyone has every done <script src="http://randomsite.com/pad-left.js">

I'd only ever load something from a non-local site if it was something I regard as stable, popular, and coming from a robust CDN.
