Angular is an open-source web development framework built and maintained by Google. It provides developers with a comprehensive platform for building modern, dynamic web applications, renowned for its speed and performance.
Angular optimizes performance through techniques such as lazy loading, caching, and minification. Its two-way data binding feature also helps to minimize the number of requests and reduce the amount of code needed to be written. This makes it an ideal choice for complex web applications that need to be fast and responsive.
