So I found some web framework benchmarks (https://www.techempower.com/benchmarks/#section=data-r16&hw=ph&test=plaintext), and apparently many widely used frameworks are slow as *heck* compared to the legit stuff. Like, I've used Flask and I know people who use Django for things, and both of those score 1-2% of the plaintext pushing performance of actix-web. And there are multiple popular frameworks which are just as slow!
I'm just kinda amazed at how slow some of these frameworks are, yet they are still very widely used.
