    Replace boost beast http server code with uWebSockets (https://github.com/uNetworking/uWebSockets). This gives a much nicer interface, and makes it easy for us to add websocket support for clients in the future.

    TLS/HTTPS is off topic. It is not a part of the test scenario described in the article. Yes, the library does contain relevant code but it's not used and it's off-topic in the context of this thread. You know that it's disabled by default, there is no HTTPS certificate generated and used.

    You are trying to draw a parallel to a placebo clinical trial and make a point that in the performance tests described in the article the library plays the role of the vaccine so it is the library which explains the performance difference. Therefore the library is good. If someone comes to this conclusion which you call 'Logical' then the article has achieved its intended purpose of promoting the library.
