Anybody using CSS Grids?
« on: May 01, 2017, 02:48:41 PM »
My Firefox home page recommended CSS grids.
Currently my stuff is largely held together through tables.
Kind of wondering if I should switch at least some to grids?

I'm using flex, but not grids yet.  I'd be very interested to hear from others about this too.

One thing I notice is that when I look at my website where I used tables, some of the formatting becomes a little strange on my phone.

I've not used grids, but it strikes me as a very good idea that will make it easier for novices to create and maintain pages with simple layouts.  I am a strong believer in separating layout and content, and therefore avoid tables for layout purposes, but CSS2.1 layouts have never been intuitive for me.
