Angular 2 is a hot topic nowadays, and it is the best framework which is not only used for web applications but is useful to create mobile apps as well. It was not possible previously, in Angular 1.

The new feature of Angular 2, modular, made it possible to create all functionality in modules, which is a fast approach. It also reduces the browser compatibility which, previously, was a main issue.
