Choosing a frontend framework in 2017
Taras Mankovski

“ Unlike Angular.js, which became popular with very little support from Google, the new framework is fully backed by Google.”

This is patently false. The “new” Angular is not a Google product and has no backing per-se from the company. It is an open source framework worked on by volunteers (some of which are Google employees) in their spare time. There is NO commercial support from Google the company.
