Disqus vs Prerender: What are the differences?
Some of the features offered by Disqus are:
- Clean & Intuitive- We designed the platform to be clutter-free, which keeps people's eyes focused on the discussion itself.
- Fully real-time Live discussions- Discussions unfold in real-time. Comments stream as they are posted and user activity indicates life on your website.
- Activity indicators- Indicators make it easier for people to notice, see, and interact with new content and activity as it happens.
On the other hand, Prerender provides the following key features:
- Open Source
- Perfect Cache
- Blazing Fast
Prerender is an open source tool with 5.19K GitHub stars and 767 GitHub forks. Here's a link to Prerender's open source repository on GitHub.

Have been using Disqus for a long time now, and have always been satisfied. Occasionally it's been a little slow to load, but I think it's gotten better over time. The UI has improved over time, too. Very easy to integrate into my Ghost blog, and complements it well in terms of styling. Very happy with it.
Disqus is a wonderful (and free) API/software platform to integrate for comments when you don't want to limit yourself to Facebook and have no interest in reinventing something done so well.
It is a solid, A-1 piece of software.
We make sure that our site is indexable by bots and spiders (such as GoogleBot and Facebook's fetcher) using Prerender, which runs our JS and render and serves the final page to bots that typically don't have JS capabilities.

Disqus is a nice well-known and easy to use commenting engine, plays well with most any web-facing integration.
A blog without a database generally needs an offsite commenting system. Disqus is mine.
