Home Forums CSS Floats for layout? Reply To: Floats for layout?


The fact is that the only method actually designed for layout IS flexbox.

All the other options weren’t designed for layout but that’s how they are used.

Basically, you can safely use any method that suits your fancy as and when the design requires it. You can mix and match as long as you are aware of the drawbacks of each option.

Maybe that will be CSS Tables, inline-block, floats or even actual tables…whatever is right at the time.

Me…I default to flexbox as I don’t have to support IE9 and below.

Not widely supported.

Well I disagree with that but you would know your audience…or at least your analytics can tell you.
