Are there useful tools to speed migration?
* A JS2 to JS offline translator, for example
* Write your web app using JS2 exclusively
* Run the translator over all of your JS2 code
* Serve the translated files to old browsers

From the above Brendanâ€™s presentation, we can see a lot of syntax improvements, which are popular in Java, C++, Python or Ruby. Maybe we could call them syntax sugars. Sugars wonâ€™t be enough. Robust IDEs are needed to help writing or managing those scripts.
