    So, I want to do a simple component with a one direction layout. What should I use: Flexbox or CSS Grid? Why?
    Is just a preference or there are pros and cons?

    Check this super simple example:
    A container with 3 children: two divs occupying only the content size and one that expands itself the maximium space possible.


    Both tools will work, but personally I lean towards flexbox because it has better support in IE11 (if you still care about IE11 support).


    I forgot to mention: if there is no browser support issues.

    My doubt is if there is anyone that found any technical advantage from one to the other. Or is just a question of readibility or approach (1D vs 2D)
