    I’m starting to work on how to respond to the question “why not just concat everything into one file, then you don’t need a loader at all.” I posted a comment to that effect to simonw here:

    Long and short of it is, I believe having 2 (maybe 3) files will in the long run be a better, faster loading profile, if a dynamic loader like LABjs is used, than if you shove everything into one file and force it to load completely serially, byte-by-byte.

    But, again, even if you still insist that one file is the best for your site, using a loader like LABjs will still help it load in parallel to the rest of the page’s resources (CSS, images), which will improve your site’s page load profile.

    Thanks for the explanation! I’ll play with it to understand better 🙂

    Also, I put up this blog post just now to help explain it a little more in depth:
