That's the insanity of how we use technology.

    If web developers had to pay CO2 taxes on the abuse of client-side resources, I think things would improve just as quickly as they have on the server-side. But in reality, there's no penalty for being stupid on the client-side, because it's the client who pays for it and the client doesn't know better.

    No eternal reward will forgive us now for wasting the dawn.
    That applies to any software not just HTML. But I agree. Tax the shit out of them. Any known optimization (recalculation is one such thing) that's not done on purpose due to whatever reason (laziness, "tainting" code, etc) should be taxed or made a criminal offense, because it kills the planet a little bit more when it's ran on clients' PCs.

    Likewise is any use of shit-tier bloated and slow languages for non-trivial tasks (again, mostly and especially if it's distributed, if it's for a build script or whatever, then it's more reasonable because millions won't get to execute it).

    Tax those fuckers till they learn.

    That's one potential upside, sure.

    This sounds like a slightly less aggressive cancer, but still a cancer nonetheless.

I wondered why this tool is so fucking slow. I wasn't surprised when I findout that it uses electron. this "technology" is cancer for destop apps.
    Postman started life as a Chrome app, until they killed those off, which explains, but not excuses, it's reliance on Electron.

    I think there's a typo in the title – there seems to be a "M'kay" missing.
