Grid is now unprefixed in Edge Insider Preview, is it safe to start using Grid Layout?
This issue comes to you from An Event Apart in Washington DC. Yesterday I spoke on CSS Grid Layout and other new layout methods, with a focus on creating components in order to make supporting older browsers easier. This issue also includes a blog post that I wrote last week on the theme of browser compatibility. Watch this space for some more tips and tricks in that regard.
