JavaScript survey: Devs love a bit of React, but Angular and Cordova declining. And you're not alone... a chunk of pros also feel JS is 'overly complex'

Re: Doesn't paint JavaScript in the best light...

Native functions? Like all the proprietry junk that has littered web browsers since their inception? Native functions that will stifle innovation, because it has to be built into the browser, then tested, then downloaded, then have a significant userbase before anyone adopts it? Or do you want to head back into the dark world of shims and compatibility js layers just to support a 'framework function'?

The browser should be light, support a general JS feature set, and a general CSS set, and HTML5. All the frameworks should be entirely separate, because I don't want to be forced to use something that the big players have invested in - be it Facebook, Google, Microsoft, Apple, Adobe, Unilever, whoever. They only want what's best for them, not the general use of the Internet.
