In the past, to create a public class field we would have used this syntax, instantiating the field in the constructor:

class Counter {
  constructor() {
    this.count = 0

The new class fields proposal, which you can use since Chrome 72 and Node 12, allows us to use this syntax:

class Counter {
  count = 0

Much simpler!
