How to retrieve specific Name/Value pairs from Querystring in Javascript?

What is the best way to retrieve specific name/value pairs in Javascript from the Querystring?
For example if the url is "http://www.mycompany.com/customer/orders.aspx?id=1&name=john&address=main"
and I need the value for the id say.

Ideally I am looking for either a jQuery or else non-library solution (i.e. raw Javascript).

Thanks.

Thought of writing this down, but here a great deal of solutions...

http://stackoverflow.com/questions/901115/get-querystring-values-in-javascript

Also a jQuery plugin is available for the same.
http://plugins.jquery.com/project/query-object

It's simple as using below...
$
.query.get('name'); // The site has the required docs..
