Well I somewhat disagree, frameworks like React have all these optimisations baked into the core
Of course a framework will never be as fast as vanilla is, but the trade-off is it wouldn't be feasible to create a lot of modern web apps without a framework

While you have few dependencies, the optimizations will/may work. I agree - there are tons of advantages about using a framework, beyond speed. If we still code long enough, will may see performance with the help of - for example - WebAssembly embedded in the cores of frameworks - that is unthinkable done vanilla.
