Modern web development is broken. We spend too much energy on tools and building globally rendered apps that have server/client states.

Developers now learn frameworks, but the reality is JS is getting so good, we may not need them as much.

Bottom line, users devices still take a long time to parse JavaScript, but developers are a little isolated with fancy dev machines to see how poor the site loads for many. When a bundle size blocks a quality application, it really makes me wonder why we force presentational component into JS bundles and hydrate state for then.
