Programs built by esbuild v0.11.5 appear to perform on average 27% slower than the same code built by Rollup. Some packages perform more than 90% slower though!
Here are the details of the benchmarks. I hope it's me, not esbuild.Read article esbuild is faster but the built programs on average are slower
