CSS Grid

Postby larry_b » Fri Jul 27, 2018 6:23 pm

Hi Gerrit,

As you know I have been working with the Jumpstart Responsive web design book. They are into the CSS Grid attribute. Although it looks very powerful, it has only been supported on all of the browser platforms for about a year. It makes me nervous to use it because of that. What are your thoughts?

Yes, CSS grid support is only available in the latest browsers but with some tricks (check f.i this article) you can make it work for most of your audience.

With all the new techniques that become available browser support will never be 100% but then again in the old days we already had to apply tricks to make our designs show sort of OK in IE6 and lower and even then some elements didn't work anyway. Designers would add a disclaimer like: Designed for use with Internet Explorer 5 and a screen resolution of 800 x 600 pixels. :lol:

Bottom line: Use fallbacks and you'll be fine. :D
