@adynathos said in Pick my front-end framework for me:

In that context, I considered it an advantage of polymer - that in the future, it may be a native feature of the browsers.
Do you find it likely they will abandon this idea?
(Or maybe my idea that Polymer == WebComponents is wrong?)

Polymer polyfills web components and adds some missing things on top of it, like a working templating language.

And yes, it doesn't seem like the web components spec has a future. No one besides Google is implementing it. Even if they were, you'd still need a javascript framework to make it actually usable, as polymer demonstrates.

TLDR: web components are awful, react has won.
