This is a really interesting comment about backticks, thanks for sharing your thoughts about the right string literal for the job Brian Mearns!

I wonder if this is one of those performance optimizations that doesn’t matter much now that computers are so fast, or if it is still a big deal for JavaScript performance.

For example, it’s like re-rendering a component vs. re-rendering the DOM. Extra component re-renders will slow an app a bit, but re-rendering the DOM a couple times will completely wreck performance.
