For me it's, as always:

I've read and reread that article countless times, because I always need another subtlety from flexbox.

I was trying to improve page load times of my blog for slow mobile browsers and stumbled upon the font-display: swap property. It will display your site's text with a fallback font before any web fonts are loaded so your users don't have to wait!

Typed css in my address bar and this was what came up... which was very recent.

css selector data attribute

I was trying to style elements given a data-id attribute on kedro-static-viz.

I was expecting something much more basic like how to add a gradient, or animation.

Thanks to you my CSS search history is fully under control, I'm not seeing any recent search history.

I now use your famous => box-shadow : 0 0 3px rgba(0,0,0,.28) recommendation. Thanks! I use Grid everywhere now, all my alignment problems are solved so far.

Out of curiosity, are you referring mostly to ModernCSS.dev and DEV articles, or my egghead lessons too? 😊

my recent search was not directly linked to CSS but rather to the design. I always have trouble choosing the fonts for my project. I always ask myself should I use one font or two? how can I manage these fonts on my project ... ?

Oh no, I'm sorry you have a project where this is still an issue! Good thing IE has switched to Chromium, we're soo close to kissing IE issues goodbye :)

Unfortunetely IE will be around for 5 more years :( But indeed Edge being Chromium based makes one more browser less for hacks :)

Still haven't figured out the "which ancestor..." thing. Was trying to figure out how to "uncrop" images posted to Twitter.

That and Wordpress and webfonts, I guess.
