Thanks for the reply Shane!

Yes, while I've never had the pleasure to support old IE, the thought of polyfills sounds extremely tedious without tools like babel so I do understand where jquery came in there.

I would also agree not to rewrite things if it does not provide business value.

The reason I had the idea for this post though was because I helped rewrite an old app to React and removing the jQuery dependency was something I did fairly quickly.

This made me realize I really didn't need it for most things so I wrote about it using my own project as example.
