Browserify vs Browserify-CDN: What are the differences?

Browserify: Browser-side require() the node.js way. Browserify lets you require('modules') in the browser by bundling up all of your dependencies; Browserify-CDN: Browserify as a service. Browsers don't have the require method defined, but Node.js does. With Browserify you can write code that uses require in the same way that you would use it in Node.

            What are some alternatives to Browserify and Browserify-CDN?
            Bower
            Bower is a package manager for the web. It offers a generic, unopinionated solution to the problem of front-end package management, while exposing the package dependency model via an API that can be consumed by a more opinionated build stack. There are no system wide dependencies, no dependencies are shared between different apps, and the dependency tree is flat.
            Babel
            Babel will turn your ES6+ code into ES5 friendly code, so you can start using it right now without waiting for browser support.
            Webpack
            A bundler for javascript and friends. Packs many modules into a few bundled assets. Code Splitting allows to load parts for the application on demand. Through "loaders" modules can be CommonJs, AMD, ES6 modules, CSS, Images, JSON, Coffeescript, LESS, ... and your custom stuff.
            npm
            npm is the command-line interface to the npm ecosystem. It is battle-tested, surprisingly flexible, and used by hundreds of thousands of JavaScript developers every day.
            RequireJS
            RequireJS loads plain JavaScript files as well as more defined modules. It is optimized for in-browser use, including in a Web Worker, but it can be used in other JavaScript environments, like Rhino and Node. It implements the Asynchronous Module API. Using a modular script loader like RequireJS will improve the speed and quality of your code.

            With Browserify we could create the inspector snippet used to connect the user's devices with the Dashboard. Using CommonJS modules we could organize large amounts of code alongside third-party JavaScript modules.

            It's the lesser of all of the other evils out there. Webpack makes you completely blind to how things are put together. I like gulp, this made it easy.

            Main React functionality pipeline broken into CommonJS modules: Reflux data stores, React components (cjsx - coffee/jsx).

            Made sharing node modules with the frontend real easy. Especially when developing hybrid apps.

            We use Browserify to keep our JS organized by requiring modules.
