Javascript ES6 only please

Starting from May 7, 2018, charte.ca charts are not displayed in browsers that do not support major ES6 features. In plain English: Internet Explorer users will not be able to see charts created by charte.ca, Edge users should be fine. Also, the editor now requires ES6 as well (which is not much of a change since the editor requires data uri support and IE and Edge are both lacking it).

Charts have just become 5-10% smaller in size.
