    Electron benefits:

    1. Design, programming possibilities - support full CSS and actual JS.

    2. Speed ​​of work and simplicity - there is no need to reopen the document for updating RichText-fields and re-/loading another subform or view.

    3. Update RichText: Back-end -> Front-end (NotesUIDocument.Refresh(True) and notesRichTextItem.Update) still works unpredictably or does not work at all.

    4. Gorgeous, fast working components for richtext - tables, etc.

    I don't want Electron. If these flaws are eliminated in Notes, many people will be very happy!
    And if you can choose: LotusScript or JavaScript in events of design elements. Now most of the events for LotusScript are not supported...

    I really like the idea of being able to make native apps with Electron and Domino. 

    It would make it possible to create nice/modern responsive apps without the need for running the app inside the Notes Client. 

    I think it would be a good platform to create apps for clients that both have a requirement for offline use and security. I'm pretty sure it is a big hole in the market for a product like that.

    And please specify the benefits from your point of view of an Electron client over a standard client.

    Please note that using Electron (or any other framework) will add a dependency which might also introduce drawbacks. (Think Eclipse)
