Developers describe axios as "Promise based HTTP client for the browser and node.js". It is a Javascript library used to make http requests from node.js or XMLHttpRequests from the browser and it supports the Promise API that is native to JS ES6. On the other hand, Modernizr is detailed as "Respond to your user’s browser features". It’s a collection of superfast tests or detects as we like to call them which run as your web page loads, then you can use the results to tailor the experience to the user. It tells you what HTML, CSS and JavaScript features the user’s browser has to offer.
