        To be fair, I've seen websites or web applications far, far more complex than any DE run perfectly fine.

          Web-based desktop eh? Kinda like what Microsoft attempted with Win98, but without all that evil proprietary stuff, I guess…

            yeah, it will be totally snappy, … as snappy on a Epyc 16-core as good old classic C/C++ stuff was on a 600 MHz Athlon ;-)

              To be fair most web 2.0 or so, HTML 5 canvas and what not sites run like crap on my dual-core 2.x GHz G5 w/ 9GB of RAM that loaded the whole web instantly just half a decade (five years) ago, … https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NU1RK4TR-GA

                1st thought: "Oh Hell"
                2nd thought: "Visual Basic Programmers"

                  I agree that most websites run like crap, I just said that you can make a snappy GUI with web-technologies too, if you aren't using WYSIWYG frameworks because you can't even fucking understand basic HTML code (yes I know many "webdevelopers").

                  These are good practices which can make a lot of difference if the developer isn't a "webdeveloper" but actually knows his shit:
                  https://developers.google.com/speed/docs/insights/rules

                  And also note that most lagging in a webpage is due to latency introduced by downloading stuff, on a local page you don't have that.

                    You don't know until you've run it. https://github.com/codesardine/Jadesktop and https://github.com/codesardine/Jade-Application-Kit on first glance it looks like the code only really use Python to launch the application window, not run any important event loops. So Python may not be a problem.

                    ...but I don't care enough to take it for a spin. My eight year old desktop runs "heavyweight" GNOME 3, KDE Plasma, and Unity 7 flawlessly and instantly.
