Talk_Description: JavaScript is a single-threaded language, but browsers use multiple threads to handle asynchronicity. I set out to explore how much we can leverage the multi-threaded nature of browsers with asynchronous recursive functions. The results are decidedly mixed & deeply confusing. This talk explores these results, which boil down to this: Asynchronous recursive functions perform best when run in the main thread in Chromium-based browsers. But they are never faster, & usually much slower, than their synchronous counterparts.
