Join Eve Porcello for an in-depth discussion in this video ES6 browser support, part of Up and Running with ECMAScript 6.
We notice a lot of green here.…This means that most of these ES5 features…have been implemented by browsers.…So, if I write ES5 code, it's going to successfully work…in most browsers.…If we click the number 6 up here at the top of our screen,…we notice that this chart is getting much more colorful.…This just means that all of these new ES6 features…are not supported by all of these browsers.…What this means is that out ES6 code…needs to be transpiled in to ES5 before we try to render it…in a browser.…
A little bit weird, I know.…

Q: The Babel API is out of date. How do I proceed with the course?
