At Filament Group, we’ve been very focused on website performance. We’ve long been curious about the performance of popular JavaScript MVC frameworks such as Angular, Backbone, and Ember, primarily because they offer elegant solutions to complex problems and we want to be able to use them in our own client work. These frameworks promise speed and developer convenience once up and running, but there is an initial cost in downloading, parsing, and executing a fairly large payload of JavaScript, particularly when the JavaScript is used to generate the HTML content for the site.
