Viewport Length Units

Hi, I'm currently watching the CSS Fundamentals series. On a video it was said that and shown that viewport length units(vh, vw) can be used to make different elements on a page responsive, if so, then isn't it better to always use these units instead of the other ones? I know it probably isn't, that's why I'm asking it here. What's the reason of using other length units when viewport length units can make elements responsive? Thanks

I think people are still using em or px because vh/vw only have support in the new browser versions.
