The type of the project does not matter in this case, it may be a mobile app or web app, or even a VR application. The faster the rendering process is, the more reduced is the load time and it is obvious that users enjoy faster loading pages. React’s Virtual DOM provides the faster rendering and the better performance of its apps. In fact, Virtual DOM is created as a copy of the Real DOM, so in case of changes, you can easily test them on Virtual DOM and after successful performance, render it on the Real DOM.<br /> | | | | :-- | :--- | |***3.

React is SEO-Friendly*** Search engine optimization plays a big and important role in website or web application’s success. What makes it SEO-friendly is high speed. And in the previous points we already referred to this topic. After reading this blog, we do hope you will be sure that React is a great front desk framework and you can make up your mind to implement it in your career or business. Now you can pay a lot of attention to React and build amazing applications with it. All we can do is wish you good luck! Globally, the front-end development ecosystem is expanding day by day, and that is already a fact we have to face.
