Polyfills

Included Polyfills

The table below lists the polyfilled JavaScript APIs required for HelixUI to function. Native support for each API is shown in columns corresponding to each of the supported browsers. For browsers that do not have native support, the final column identifies the asset in which the polyfill is provided.

Native support is checked against the latest release of each browser.
