Please don't call modern Angular (2+) AngularJS. That's the name for Angular 1.x.

Also, Angular does not re-render the entire page as you described; there is advanced, configurable change detection strategies that are used to only render what is necessary.

You also might want to touch on opinionative vs non-opinionative, who develops and supports it (Google/Facebook), how often new versions are being released, which is more popular, what big companies are using, and which has a better support community.

Hmmmm, It is a general talk and if you have the enough knowledge then you also know that the early version of Angular has been dissipated so when a person will start learning he will star learning from the Angular version 11, which is the latest. AngularJS was a default terminology, if you know what a default terminology means.

From the official Angular site:

angular.io/guide/ajs-quick-reference

"Angular is the name for the Angular of today and tomorrow. AngularJS is the name for all v1.x versions of Angular."
