If people were meeting the French with 3.exd5, I can assure you that I wouldn't play anything else, as Black.

Indeed. Exchange variation in the KID is cool for black. Just consult Kasparov's games from even 20 years back. Anyways, try the Tarrasch if in dire need. It's pretty solid. Best wishes😉

Tarrasch can be a very sharp counter play.

The April 2018 issue of Chess lists the top twenty openings compiled from a list of 2706 February games where both players were rated over 2400 Elo. One can not take position on this list too seriously because it is greatly influenced by how the openings are grouped. For example, all the Retis are grouped together, while English is separated into 1...c5, 1...e5, etc. Nevertheless, for what it is worth, some of the list entries are: 214 Retis, 127 Caro-Kanns, 123 King's Indians, 84 declined Queen's Gambits, 74 Slavs, 71 Nimzo-Indians, 66 Najdorf Sicilians, 56 Taimanov Sicilians, 53 Queen's Indians, 52 1...Nf6 Englishes, 51 1...e6 Englishes, 51 1...c5 Englishes, 51 Classical Gruenfelds, 49 Giuoco Pianos, 47 Kan Sicilians, and 45 Tarrasch Frenches.
