Good to see that we’re on the same page. Did you include angular-optimized-v6.1.0-keyed? (I’m just considering keyed results)
Angular gets an slowdown geometric mean of 1.21, better than Vue (1.38) and React flavors (I just considered react-*, which get >1.55).
I’m sorry to hear that it caused you trouble, in the end, your experience is what matters the most to you, but I’ve had quite a good experience with Angular, blazing fast. I had a good experience with React too, though. A matter of tastes.
