State of JS 2022

The State of JS survey aims to take the pulse of the JavaScript-using community. If you are using JS in any shape or form, you are invited to share your opinion on the ecosystem.

State of frontend 2022

The Software House published its State of frontend 2022 report. The survey was filled by over 3700 people from 125 countries, while the results have been analyzed by 19 frontend experts. You can read the report online or you can download it for later.

Browser news


IE 11 will be permanently disabled on certain versions of Windows 10 starting February 2023. If your organization still requires IE, make sure you are prepared for the transition.


Operating Systems come and go. All browsers will stop supporting Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 in 2023. Vivaldi dev and security expert Yngve Pettersen explains the challenges faced by browser vendors in such a situation.
