Moment is a popular JavaScript library for parsing, manipulating, and formatting dates and times. It provides a simple and intuitive API for working with dates, allowing you to easily perform operations like adding or subtracting time, formatting dates, and working with timezones. Moment supports parsing and formatting dates in various formats, making it versatile for different use cases.

Compared to native JavaScript date handling, Moment offers a more consistent and user-friendly experience. It provides a wide range of features and utilities for working with dates, making it a go-to choice for many developers. However, it's worth noting that Moment is considered a legacy package and is no longer actively maintained. As a result, it is recommended to consider alternative libraries like Luxon or Day.js, which offer similar functionality with better performance and ongoing support.
