That's definitely one of the reasons. I remember those days. But 
even MS finally gave in (IE just faded out, devs and users didn't 
care anymore), nowadays you can use JS and CSS and be confident 
that it will work (with a few minor exceptions like getting the 
selected <option> of a <select> element).

Another reason is that young people are used to frameworks and 
packages and often wonder why I didn't just download some fancy 
packages. But I wonder why I would do that if I can do it with 
@keyframes and JS and 10 lines of code.

Sure, web companies like Google and Facebook offer out of the box 
solutions, because they want devs to create apps and websites as 
fast as possible, and companies / startups are under pressure to 
impress clients and investors. Often it's disposable stuff like 
an app for the Soccer World Cup and the like. So there is demand 
and I'm not against it, but one has to decide whether or not it's 
good for your own project(s). Only because it's available and 
used all over the world doesn't mean it's the right thing for 
your project(s). It's like fast food. Sometimes it's a good 
solution, and it's good that we have it, but should you depend on
