You can make changes to your template, but the scripts automatically added by components will always end up at the top! ScriptsDown moves ALL of your scripts to the bottom of the page just before the closing body tag (even IE conditionals). It doesn't matter where they came from, the bottom is where they'll end up unless you configure the plugin to leave them in place.
ScriptsDown requires properly formatted markup! Before implementing this plugin, test your site against the W3C validator. If your page doesn't validate for your chosen doctype, then ScriptsDown will not work.
Update 1.16 - performance enhancement
