Submission + - JavaScript Is Way Too Slow – for What?

An anonymous reader writes: Simon St. Laurent suggests a little clarification when it comes to the use of JavaScript in mobile web apps "I keep finding that programmers—even web programmers—frequently think “web application” means “JavaScript application.” Programmers are, of course, used to working with programming languages, and often see application environments from the perspective of the programming language in use.

These blinders derail Drew Crawford’s detailed rant on Why mobile web apps are slow. It turns out that “slow for what?” is a key part of the question, as Crawford reveals near the very end"
