Stop building web with JavaScript apps

I quite like this formulation of the fairly common (and correct) sentiment that we don’t need SPAs for most websites.

Instead of displaying the requested information (which Google has probably found and linked to – I doubt many people think I’ll head to the Quora website to find the answer to this question) Quora opts to run a program so that the advertisements load alongside the program itself, using your computing power and resources.

There is no need to run a program in the visitor’s browser in order to display the answers to a different question.
