Web development with old browsers

How a web developer deal with browsers which doesn't support last html5/ES6/css3 features nowadays? Does he or she build a lot of page versions with polyfill for each browser ? Or old browsers aren't taken in consideration ? Where is the limit?

Web developers use tools like Babel. It transpiles any modern JS (ES6, ES7 and etc) to ES5, which is supported by old browsers.

Try Babel / Sucrase / swc / Bublé. They all compile to ES5
