Discussion on: Angular: How to support IE11

I've worked on a few apps with Angular that support IE11, had no issues that were Angular specific. Also with Angular 8 there's differential loading which produces polyfill bundles for older browsers alongside smaller bundles for modern browsers (it's very clever!)

It is, I have a note in the article how it can increase bundle size if you allow it to run for IE9 and 10.

From what I've experienced though, was that dropping the target to es5 meant that your dependencies have to support es5.

I left a comment under one of the feedback to this article to state that it was very possible to support IE11, and in truth, Angular did not in itself have any issues, however, the additional tools you might use along with it will need extra work
