Classes are essential elements of object-oriented programming, so as to how often they are used I might say "constantly". :wink:

Now if you're talking about the newer syntax compared to the classic prototype constructors, the frequency might be a bit lower, but I expect it is continually increasing as more programmers who learned JavaScript since ES6 join the workforce. I'd bet it's mostly only the "old timers" who use the older syntax.
