Next.js 11 Accelerates Frontend Performance and Enables Instant Collaboration to Let Developers Build the Next Big Thing, Faster
Next.js is the first hybrid framework to succeed at scale, and the only one to meet the needs of both static and dynamic websites and applications. Leveraging React as the fundamental unit of collaboration gives developers at companies including TikTok, Hulu, Ticketmaster, Staples (News - Alert) and Marvel the flexibility to scale from one page to one billion pages.
Since the first Next.js Conf in October 2020, Next.js open-source contributors have grown to more than 1,600, driving downloads on NPM from 4.1M to 6.2M. Traffic to all sites and apps on the Vercel edge network has doubled, weekly deploys have quadrupled and the number of homepages in the Alexa top 10,000 using Next.js have grown by 50%.
"Whether you're starting with a single static page or deploying a dynamic site with billions of pages, Next.js is the hybrid framework that meets you where you are and grows with you," said Vercel CEO Guillermo Rauch. "We believe the fastest and most enjoyable end-user experience must go hand in hand with the fastest and most enjoyable developer experience."
