Basically, a framework is a program allowing to simplify coding by performing certain functions.
High efficiency — with frameworks, developers can use pre-built functions in several minutes and avoid hundreds of code lines. The development process becomes more efficient, and the end product can be delivered not only on time but also ahead of the deadline.
Security — if the framework is widely used and is one of the top ones, it has solid safety arrangements. In fact, its users act as long-term testers as well, so if there is any vulnerability or a bug, they report it on the framework’s official website.
Angular.JS was released in 2009 which makes it the oldest framework so far. Being mostly used for creating single page web applications, it has won the trust of the largest community and is supported by Google.

3. Troubles with third-party integration;
4. Some developers do not consider it as a full framework but as a library.
1. High performance;
2. Server-side rendering;
3. Perfect documentation;
4. Two-way data binding;
1. Complications with processing quick changes;
2. The heaviest of the frameworks;
