I'm glad someone else said this, you've echoed a lot of my thoughts. I'm a huge react fan, and I think this is super neat - once again showing the flexibility and power of React's component and render model. It'll probably have a big impact on game UI for the web.

That said, doing this on a content-driven site is absolute madness. It breaks so many things, and throws away so many fundamental tenets of the web. by the time they've reimplemented everything they'll have probably lost all performance wins. The fancy animations are a miniscule gain for such a great loss of functionality

Excited to play with this though, since I'm learning canvas and graphics!
