For the first time, I tried to use script type="module" in Chrome, which supports ES6 imports.

It’s a wonderful feeling when you can shed off the bundler, and just split your javascript into files however you want, importing files from each other. This kind of freedom is exhilarating, but at the same time a bit sad, because once you have tasted typescript you are very unlikely to want to go back to plain untyped javascript, even though modern browsers have native support for javascript modules and are unlikely to ever support typescript.

Richard Feldman (an Elm guy) has said in a recent talk that of those who starts using typescript, almost no-one goes back to plain javascript. This sounds very believable.

Well, no native module support by the browser for me then.
