"Optional chaining" is really nice!
If you have written any JS you have probably had to do something like this this:
if (myObject && myObject.foo === 1)
in order to prevent things from going to shit if myObject happens to be undefined.
Optional chaining lets you do this:
if (myObject?.foo === 1)
It's made a whole lot of my code a whole lot less verbose. It's of course even better when accessing sub-sub-sub properties. More here:
