Everyone’s into it because the responsiveness is so much better than loading a full page - 10-50ms with a clean API load vs. 300-1500ms for a full HTML page load.


Not everyone is into it. I hate it. For many reasons.

Only place I like it is for feeds, like Tumblr, and even there is can be 
really problematic sometimes.

Web devs can keep using it, free world, but calling it HTML6 would be 
absurd. HTML should not embrace particular design choices.

My two cents.
