The future of CSS layouts

The future of CSS layouts | Feature | .net magazine.

From time to time I’ll hear mumblings of CSS being ‘boring’ or ‘slow-moving’ or just an observation that everything CSS has ‘been done’. I beg to differ.

Every time I think about how exciting JavaScript has become, I try to keep in mind that an equivalent amount of work is being done on the style layer as well. As each browser gets updated, a little more of CSS makes it into the wild.

While pretty much none of this layout magic is truly usable at this point, to try and think about what it’s going to be like putting together a site from scratch in ten years is warping my mind.
