CSS doesn’t suck

Direct Link →

I'm not so protective of CSS that I'm above hearing it criticized, but I'm certainly in agreement here. CSS does not suck. I love how the post is framed to hype up current CSS features the way features of other languages and tools are hyped:

Imagine if a tech dude walked on stage at a conference and said the following:

“This declarative language will gracefully continue on failure, allow you to write global and scoped code, and it will work across your entire front-end stack, whether it’s rendered by a framework, a CMS or a static HTML file”

... Now, if I make a slight amendment to that, the reception would probably be the exact opposite.

“CSS will gracefully continue on failure, allow you to write global and scoped code, and it will work across your entire front-end stack, whether it’s rendered by a framework, a CMS or a static HTML file”
