I feel like we need a word or phrase to encapsulate SSR + rehydration; just saying SSR doesn’t cover it, in my opinion—it puts the emphasis on the part that isn’t causing the problem.

Replying to a tweet from @slightlylate

For clarity: is the problem with server-side rendering or is the problem with rehydration?

(e.g. if I serve up HTML+CSS and then don’t subsequently dump a bucket of JS on everything, is it fair to say that’s good for performance?)

Berliners—don’t miss this evening’s @BerlinJS; I’ve had a sneak peek of the talk that @CassieCodes is giving, and it is excellent!

Web standards aren’t like software development. When something lands in a browser, it’s forever. That should not be taken lightly.

Replying to a tweet from @discodavey

Whoops! Looks like an unencoded ampersand slipped in there. Should be all fixed now. (Thanks for letting me know!)

I 100% agree that Apple are the worst at making up proprietary crap behind closed doors.

That in no way absolves other browser vendors from being held to account (especially the browser with the largest market share).
