Discussion on: The ultimate CSS battle: Grid vs Flexbox

Thanks for this article!

I had never heard of Grid, so I am totally new to it.

However, it seems to me that these examples might be misleading in order to understand the use cases for it:

  • using a grid for the final 2-dimensional layout seems like a uselessly rigid design compared to using one main vertical flexbox filled with horizontal flexboxes
  • out of pure instinct, it seems to me that in cases like these examples, using grid would be like using tables for layout: something that has been deemed bad practice, and I understand why, because it looks like perverting their purpose

This is really out of pure intuition on my part, since I don't know this at all, but I found your other example with the image grid a lot more suited.

I would love to have your thoughts on this!
