comment What advantages are conferred by using server-side page rendering?
@ZweiBlumen perhaps, but with page caching being common in web frameworks you are often just dealing with IO, not processing. Server-side JSON caching is also possible, but not usually built-in. (JSON would surely use less internet bandwidth, tho).

+1 On modern smartphones (using webkit mobile primarily), JS is not likely to bottleneck, whereas cell-network bandwidth is.

@MattMcDonald You don't like "Lower bandwidth usage"? Two other quick rebuttals: jQuery; and, server-rendered frameworks != no browser bugs.

@user1303881 Haven't used dust but indeed the linkedIn promo is compelling.

@vartec Admittedly, that rule of thumb may be fading out as javascript engines improve. Historically, most browsers in most conditions generate DOM elements from parsing HTML strings faster than if they need to use JS computation. Can't seem to find any good comparo's online, but that's been my experience (usually my experience involves IE8 and even IE6, tho).

@Raynos He hadn't mentioned using a client-side framework, but if he is using one, that's a good point.
