One of the biggest advantages that Remix offers over Next.js is its abstracted front-end implementation, meaning it is decoupled from React. Even though integrating Remix with React remains the common approach right now, you have other options such as Svelte and Vue if preferred. The increased flexibility provided by Remix allows for more creative possibilities when building apps or websites.
Building on web standards
Remix leverages existing standards while also taking them to the next level, as exemplified by its implementation of the Fetch API. This groundbreaking technology is built into modern web browsers and has become the de facto standard for network requests. It’s effectively replaced any need to utilize third-party libraries in order to send out data within a browser, incorporating much of what was effective from those platforms along the way.
Remix takes it a step further by not just utilizing the Fetch API in the browser, but also employing an HTTP client that utilizes this same API on its server. In doing so, developers can rest assured knowing they are using the same reliable and easily understandable API throughout their whole stack.
