The replies I've seen to this post are so frustrating. You can definitely use the latest Javascript features and APIs while still providing access to older browsers and devices. You don't have to provide special access, determine a list of supported versions, or build a specific version for those browsers/devices.

Use a proper HTML foundation and your site will work without Javascript in nearly any browser. That covers weird edge cases like the one described. Then use the module/nomodule technique so you can write the sleekest code with all the modern amenities and still provide an ES5 bundle to browsers that need it. Then your site will work in nearly all cases, no matter the device, browser, or bugs in your code.
