FULL DISCUSSION
 

Bundling/compilation tools are the product of browsers not staying up to spec on language features, not a problem of JavaScript itself. Server-side languages generally can add new features to languages with the only tooling update needed being the version on the server; we can't do this in front end, because we rely on the client to serve our code. If the browsers supported more modern JS features or we could install versions as easily as we can to a server, compilation would be irrelevant.

 

I think this was more inline with what I wanted to say. I have made some edits to reflect this. I know JavaScript is only as good as it's browser.
