    1. Hey Karol,

      By using it in the production I meant the dialog element is supported by all the modern browsers except a few obscure browsers, such as IE, Opera Mini, KaiOS browser, UC browser etc, that still doesn’t support the dialog element.

      The market share of these browsers is fairly low at this point. And that’s why I said it’s safe to use it in the production.

  1. You can use another way that is much simpler for detecting outside click:

    const listener = (event: Event) => {
    if (
    event.target !== collectEmail &&
    ) {

    // clicked outside the `collectEmail `

    You’re welcome 🙂
