For years, I’ve written about how React is absolutely terrible for performance.
Taylor Hunt does a good deep-dive into modern React’s performance issues.
It was particularly
shocking interesting to hear that, by the React core teams own admission, React has been slow form the very beginning, and they’ve just always kicked that can down the road.
So people started playing around with this internally, and everyone had the same reaction. They were like, “Okay, A.) I have no idea how this is going to be performant enough, but B.) it’s so fun to work with.” Right? Everybody was like, “This is so cool, I don’t really care if it’s too slow — somebody will make it faster.”
Friends… no one made it faster.
