On the heels of Håkon Wium Lie’s condemning of CSS regions, Sara Soueidan writes about all their benefits. Having read both now carefully, I think Hakon is wrong on each point and CSS regions are quite useful.

Paramount to the discussion:

CSS Regions are not a layout feature — they’re a fragmentation feature

Whatever any of us think, Blink is going to yank out early support for regions, mainly citing performance reasons. Weird to me: why was this reported on big sites with negative “dump” and “rejects” headlines?
