Discussion on: Angular: How to support IE11

I'm actually going to disagree. It was still possible to support IE11, fully, despite the polyfills and ponyfills.

Knowing the limitations now allows us to move forward keeping these restrictions in mind, but Angular on its own is not to fault, and potentially shouldn't be overlooked just because IE11 has to be supported.

It also allows us to continue to develop in a modern environment, which keeps the option that if we ever no longer have to support IE11, due to changes in SLAs, then we can remove the polyfills and alter the target in the tsconfig compilerOptions to target a more modern version of ECMAScript.
