  1. Function constructors still have their place for now, but they are dying. They are going to be used for a very long time for compatibility reasons, although you may not see them too often in day to day work.

    • Side note: I would also discourage the use of classes, they are inefficient and many frameworks are starting the transition to move away from them (See React)
  2. I have only ever seen bitwise operators in hobby projects. That isnt to say that there isnt a use for them, but you are unlikely to ever need them.

Only the process of creating new classes is costly.
So in case of react functional vs class based wont give you much difference, if you scripted your components properly.
