jQuery Plugin For Deselectable Radio Buttons

For a long time, there's been an issue with the ability to clear selected radio buttons in HTML. This plugin gives you that functionality with a little bit of jQuery script.

deselectable-radioboxes.js is a super tiny jQuery plugin that allows you to select/deselect radio buttons by toggling the checked state using JavaScript. This can make any HTML radio button deselectable just like a checkbox.
