It is licensed under the MIT License and supports IE 9/10/11, Edge, Chrome, Firefox, Safari and Opera. On the other hand, RequireJS is detailed as "JavaScript file and module loader". 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.

    Used Require.js to make the application modular. It provides better dependency management with asynchronous loading of scripts.
