    Somehow I think I have seen this before.

    But I totally agree that javascript is one of the most costly pieces of code out there. You should imagine how your webpage loads on a 1 mbit/sec connection before you’re putting another framework in there.

      the dominant costs of processing scripts are now download and CPU execution time.

      I think this misses the most critical aspect: that scripts come with the cost of increased number of bugs.

      In practice – as a user – I find this is by far the most significant cost of JavaScript. Sure, download and CPU time matter, but waiting a bit longer is merely annoying, whereas the website bugging out on me prevents me from Getting Shit Done.
