Sorry but you missed a HUGE part for anyone using frameworks like gatsby.js and next.js!! React.lazy now works with serverside rendering out of the box! No more 'funny code' to check if the code is running on a server or in the browser, it just works out of the box. This can be used in several ways, but an example would to defer parts of the code that isn't necessary when initially loading a webpage because it's used for 'below the fold' content. This stuff is super powerful when optimizing web pages for speed and SEO.
