Discussion on: 🤯 Create a modal with zero line of CSS 🤯

Sure, but dialog is only supported in Chrome, so in my opinion it's unreasonable to ship it without a polyfill.

I appreciate your argument, but I think it implies that you should always just create your own modal and not use the built-in one :)

Yes, in the current state of adoption, your polyfill is the only way to use the dialog element in production.

And if a developer uses React or Vue, he/she can easily overcome the polyfill's major limitation (stacking context) by using portals. ✌️
