Angular 2 is currently in the “beta” phase of development but already there has been improvements over the original. Angular 2:
– is much faster than AngularJs
– supports fast initial loads
– allows offline compile
– has exceedingly fast change detection
– has fast view caching
– supports a variety of browsers
– can be used across different platforms
Google wanted to make it possible for the Angular framework to be used on mobile phones, smart technology and other devices. However, the new version did not prove popular with some developers who thought it was a step too far from the original Angular, making it difficult to use with existing websites and current services. However, the latest version has taken on board these issues and these concerns have been addressed.
There is currently a strong movement towards the creation of new apps as software develops and more people are becoming interested and skilled in using programming languages and tools to create apps of their own and Angular 2 is destined to be a key factor in this growing trend.
