uglify-js is discontinued and does not cover modern javascript:

uglify-es is no longer maintained and uglify-js does not support ES6+.

terser is a fork of uglify-es that mostly retains API and CLI compatibility with uglify-es and uglify-js@3.


yuicompressor, cpan:CSS::Minifier and cpan::CSS::Minifier::XS are all outdated and should be removed. Actually building releases with these might break results.
