I see that PostgreSQL is being developed, for example it has
INTERSECT and JSON types. Why MySQL is not being developed? Why people use MySQL over PostgreSQL. What I'm missing?

I'm not sure of the reasoning behind the question, do you think that
MySQL didn't have procs, or views until v5, but it was still massively popular.
Simple answer is because it is doing what needs to be done.
While ago MySQL didn't support subqueries, transactions or EXISTS/IN statements and people were using it. While ago PostgreSQL was not supporting JOINs and people were using it.
