Yes, although I do use Angular, which also pulls in a lot of 
dependencies, but then I expect Google to do the maintenance. 
Anyway, there is a big difference between having many 
dependencies on something that runs on the server (bad idea) and 
using a framework that runs client-side in the browser "sandbox".

That's true. I believe the "culture" of using libraries for such 
things come from around ten years ago when browsers had very 
different feature sets.

The exception is when you implement a UI with a standard 
look-and-feel. Like Google Material, which has an animated 
counterpart in Angular.
