  1. Awesome summary. I was convinced to try date-fns over moment. I just wish you had mentioned here (since date-fns does not, at the time, in their documentation) that if you want to use it in a browser, you must use a bundler to build the .js file yourself. Due to time constraints, it is no longer available on a CDN or for download.

  2. Moment is not immutable https://momentjs.com/guides/#/lib-concepts/mutability/ and it’s in their documentation since a very long time ago. Another thing in their documentation is that they don’t recommend their library anymore. Chrome dev tools recommend not using it for its bundle size alone. Please, update this article, it’s very misleading to have momentjs in the top like a “clear winner” or “because it’s the most known”.
