Issue 84

It's here! CSS Grid finally lands in a production browser with the launch of Firefox 52. Chrome should follow suit next week, and Safari when the current beta ships.

In celebration - and because people have been creating some great content over the last week in preparation for grid shipping - this week is all grid themed. We'll be back to a mixture of layout-related fun next week. However today, celebrate with me the arrival of the grid :)

Eric's Archived Thoughts: Welcome to the Grid

"So if you’re thinking of grid as tables 2.0, please, stop.  Table-style layouts are the first one percent of what grid offers.  There are works of art and undiscovered techniques waiting in the other 99 percent."

Eric Meyer explains why Grid isn't tables, and shares his hopes for the things people might do with it.

The benefits of learning how to code layouts with CSS | Jen Simmons

"The more I use CSS Grid, the more convinced I am that there is no benefit to be had by adding a layer of abstraction over it. CSS Grid is the layout framework. Baked right into the browser."
