NOT ON THE CURRENT EDITION
This blip is not on the current edition of the radar. If it was on one of the last few editions it is likely that it is still relevant.

CSS is the preferred choice for laying out web pages, even when it did not provide much explicit support for creating layouts. Flexbox helped with simpler, one-dimensional layouts, but developers usually reached for libraries and toolkits for more complex layouts. CSS Grid Layout is a two-dimensional grid-based layout system that provides a mechanism to divide available space for layout into columns and rows using a set of predictable sizing behaviors. Grid does not require any libraries and plays well with Flexbox and other CSS display elements. However, since IE11 is only partially supported, it ignores users who still depend on a Microsoft browser on Windows 7.
