Why is React JS the Best Library Around?

I disagree with the premise and I've been using React full-time for the last 7 years.

React was the best thing since sliced bread for a long time, but now there are far better options such as Solid. React owes its continued success to good timing. When it was released, it was almost revolutionary, but we were more than ready for it. Nowadays, even with far superior web frameworks being released, React is still more than good enough and has a massive community and ecosystem behind it, so it's not going to be displaced any time soon.

You are right @stevetaylor what framework we are using today is only the present not the future . We have to be ready to adopt better one with time. No doubt @ryansolid is doing well for solid, misko opinion was to not build any framework after angular but he introduced Quik for better TTI, in the same way Astro and Marko team is working for better present nothing is future whatever we are seeing is the better present than ever.

I haven’t used Vue, so I don’t have much of an opinion.
