  10. CSS Grid Layout "Unlike Flexbox, however, which is single-axis–oriented, Grid Layout is optimized for 2-dimensional layouts: those in which alignment of content is desired in both dimensions." -- https://drafts.csswg.org/css-grid/
  11. Defining a simple grid .cards { display:grid; grid-template-columns: 1fr 1fr 1fr; grid-gap: 10px; }

  18. Lots of Grid Examples http://gridbyexample.com
  19. CSS Shapes "CSS Shapes describe geometric shapes for use in CSS. For Level 1, CSS Shapes can be applied to floats. A circle shape on a float will cause inline content to wrap around the circle shape instead of the float’s bounding box." -- https://drafts.csswg.org/css-shapes/
  20. A simple circle .balloon { float: left; width: 429px; shape-outside: circle(50%); } <div class="box"> <img class="balloon" src="round-balloon.png" alt="balloon"> <p>...</p> </div> http://codepen.io/rachelandrew/pen/KrvyQq

  23. CSS Feature Queries with @supports Like Modernizr but in native CSS. "The ‘@supports’ rule is a conditional group rule whose condition tests whether the user agent supports CSS property:value pairs." -- https://www.w3.org/TR/css3-conditional/#at-supports
  24. Does my browser support display: flex? @supports (display: flex) { .has-flex { display: block; background-color: #0084AD; color: #fff; } }
  25. Does my browser support display: grid? @supports (display: grid) { .has-grid { display: block; background-color: #284C6D; color: #fff; } }

  27. .balloon { border: 1px solid #999; padding: 2px; } @supports ((shape-outside: ellipse()) and ((clip-path: ellipse()) or (-webkit-clip-path:ellipse()))) { .balloon { border: none; padding: 0; float: right; width: 640px; min-width: 640px; height: 427px; shape-outside: ellipse(33% 50% at 460px); -webkit-clip-path: ellipse(28% 50% at 460px); clip-path: ellipse(28% 50% at 460px); } }

CSS Custom Properties "This module introduces a family of custom author-defined properties known collectively as custom properties, which allow an author to assign arbitrary values to a property with an author-chosen name, and the var() function, which allow an author to then use those values in other properties elsewhere in the document." -- https://drafts.csswg.org/css-variables/
  31. :root { --primary: blue; --secondary: orange; } h1 { color: var(--primary); } http://codepen.io/rachelandrew/pen/qNXpEZ
  32. Testing for custom properties :root { --primary: blue; --secondary: orange; } @supports (--primary: blue) { h1 { color: var(--primary); } h2 { color: var(--secondary); } } http://codepen.io/rachelandrew/pen/mErpZA
