Friday, December 29th, 2006p>Dylan Schiemann of Dojo and Sitepen has expounded asking What is bloat?.
At the core of this article we hear loud and clear:
- We need better tools to minimize bloat of various flavours
- We need better tools to be mindful of the bloat
- When users have 6 tabs open with rich ajax apps within them, it isn’t fun right now
Where does Dojo fit into this?
Dojo will be working over the coming months to improve performance, which is something we have been doing with each release of Dojo. But improving toolkit performance is not enoughâ€¦ we also need to share best practices on how to get the most out of our browsers, and to ask for more from browser vendors (theyâ€™re already listening). We will be writing a series of posts on performance tuning and testing, and we look forward to reading your comments and trackbacks, and learning from your performance tips. We as a community need to fix this issue before Ajax suffers the same fate as DHTML. After all, no one likes to be bloated.
