Split JS strings into sentences, words or graphemes with `Intl.Segmenter`

If you’ve ever had to split a string into sentences, you may have reached for a naive regular expression:

'Hello! How are you?'.split(/[.!?]/);

Instead of giving yourself two problems, Stefan Judis says maybe reach for Intl.Segmenter, which he shows is quite sophisticated and supported everywhere but Firefox.
