While SSR has gotten some more support in the past 1-2 years, This is not going to sit well with majority of HN crowds.
One thing I really want to see is some sort of predictable latency rendering. Every page should render at fixed predetermined timing regardless latency ( Subject to Network latency difference so everyone would have different value ) . I dont like webpage that some times load so fast it felt it is punching me to the face while some links of it takes 3s to load.
