Discussion on: Svelte Needs A Virtual DOM

I am really curious to see actual data, because the arguments you list here seem wrong (svelte does not update 4 times either, as I see it) or do not convince me. In contrast, I perceive the virtual DOM for most tasks an unnecessary overhead. Only the really big/intensive applications like Fakebook, where you have hundrets of scripts all loading and modifying the DOM simultaneously seem like a valid use case to me.

Yes, it was for the simplified illustration. May be, I wasn't clear in my words. I meant to say if "four changes" happen. I will upload the reports for the actual data.
