**Warning** Socket.IO is not a representation of, or a substitute for, µWS. Socket.IO (µWS version included) has always had, and will continue to have *severe* fundamental performance issues amassing a staggering 100x overhead to µWS. There is no such thing as "certified by µWS" or similar effortless silver bullet solutions. If you are not directly using µWS then you are NOT in position to receive any of its benefits. No such wrapper project, Primus, Engine.IO, Socket.IO, SocketCluster, Feathersjs, properly represent or portray the original µWS. Wrapper overhead of 5-100x is not uncommon but in fact the norm. Most of the above mentioned wrappers see almost no improvement from using µWS due to longstanding negligence. It becomes a marketing scam more than a technical improvement to state "now using µWS". It doesn't mean anything if the project in question has severe, deep-rooted issues. **WARNING** *µWS is not affiliated with, represented by, substituted with, or in any shape or form encouraged to be used via Socket.IO, SocketCluster, Primus, Engine.IO, Feathers or any similar wrapper module. No such wrapper project properly represent or portray µWS and should not be confused with, or misrepresented as being µWS. Severe, fundamental and deep-rooted performance catastrophes haunt every mentioned wrapper project and utterly ruin any chance of a proper speed-up. Everything from 5x to a staggering 100x overhead to µWS has been measured for mentioned wrapper projects. If you are not directly using µWS then you should absolutely not assume any of its benefits.*
