docs.microsoft.com - working partially and browser not supported message

docs.microsoft.com is displaying a "This browser is no longer supported" banner and the pages are incompletely displayed (they only show the page text without any "UI").
Overriding the user agent doesn't solve the problem.

Guess JavaScript engine doesn't handle it, console says:

Code: Select all

SyntaxError: expected expression, got '?'   2872c992.index-docs.js:1:83893
Crazy how things that could be done nicely with simple HTML are buried behind obscure scripts.

Whatever JavaScript bells and whistles are in use must be fairly recent, it doesn't work in Chrome 79 neither, which was released in late 2019 - I have that version on my smartphone. Regardless, there's no unsupported message there and that the user should upgrade to ChrEdge.

It's the Nullish Coalescing Operator and we don't support it yet.

At this point, searching for these errors get matches so DO search.
Better that a 100 probably guilty people die then one of them get a clean shot on me.
