I am using the latest checkout of silverstripe, I've noticed that prototype.js is included automatically into my templates. It is currently interfering with some of my Jquery stuff and it is SO big.. I want to disable it?

How would I go about doing this?

To block prototype.js from being included you can put


in your Page_Controller's init function

Thanks for the reply!

Could you explain the reasoning of including it by default?
