Speed of JavaScript metro apps compared to native solution

    Question

  • I wonder how fast and responsive JS metro apps are going to be in the future. Will they support quick list view filtering based on multiple criteria the user can select?

    Or should we start right from the beginning to use C++ and skip JS?

  • Hi Phil,

    You would have to test your specific scenario to see if it would be acceptable performance.  This is today in today's programming world with various languages.  Not much has changed in that realm!  If you have some interesting tests and comparisons it would be cool of you to share with the community here.

  • I watched more Metra WinJS vids from build today and I am pretty excited about the listview control. I will hack together a prototype of an app in December I hope. With all the smart fetching for cloud data sources the performance should be outstanding.
