Most of DENO's features are completly bullshit. e.g : Sandboxing.

RY said : "We can't enforce permissions for native code. Once you load a .so file, all security promises are gone."
So, the first major argument is... not true.
Because sandboxing needs to be done at an OS level not at the runtime level.

Dependencies via URLs are..., well, awful.
If the code change, it will either break your program because of these changes or because the integrity hash won't be the same. Remember go dependencies management system ?

To conclude, only beginners or external to the node environment could be hyped by such a project.
