False. "Unique tricks developers don't know" creates high expectations: I'm hoping to read something I don't find in every beginner tutorial out there, something my years of experience never showed me; I'm surely not expecting how to use a basic CSS rule. If you don't know something, that doesn't mean no one knows. Stop with the forced relativism, the statement "everyone is right" is false.

Respected sir, Everything you know doesn't means everything everyone knows. We're highly sorry if you didn't like the content. We'll try to research more about this.

You don't seem to understand my point: the problem is NOT the content, it's the click-bait title; i you wrote "Nice tricks for Frontend Developers" it would have been a ok piece, with this title it's just upsetting.
Anwyay, have a nice day.

I agree with Matteo, the title is only click-bait because most developers know it is probably false and then click it to confirm their suspicion. Just a small change to the title would have been much better, such as "8 Unique tricks some experienced Front-end Developers still don't know". Then we click to find out how many we do know. I knew and have used 6 of the 8: small and math were new to me. So I appreciate the article and the chance to review all 8, but the title is getting the reader off to a poor start.

The whole internet use "click-bait" titles 😉 and it works ... almost 600 reactions for 8 secrets everyone knows and the real secrets are lost in the very bottom of the list and you probably need 2 days scrolling to find them.
