Jeremy once again about the advantages (and misconceptions) of the Progressive Enhancement approach, 2020 edition, in light of SSR and 'Hydration'.

… So you’ve got a facade of an interface that you can’t actually interact with until a deluge of JavaScript has been loaded, parsed and executed. The term used for this stage of the process is “hydration”, which makes it sound more like a relaxing treatment from Gwyneth Paltrow than the horrible user experience it is.

I find (t)his layered approach and the rule of least power so, so much convincing and 'natural' for what the web and browsers are good at. But then again I am old enough to have witnessed how these technoligies have evolved, and naturally I am still working and thinking like that nothing besides HTML is granted - so everything aside from well structured content is an enhancement already.
