Curious about media queries and flex-box.
I just finished the flex-box section and I have a few questions about flex box and media queries.
Which one is better, I have messed around with media queries and and really enjoyed making websites responsive. I was really impressed with the simplicity of flex-box. But I'm worried that flex-box doesn't have wide browser support. Are a lot of the sites created today, made with flex-box or media queries?
Which one has more browser support and how do get flex-box to work in older browsers like IE 8 and IE6?
What do some of the pros use here to create responsive websites? Thank you in advance for any replies.

You'd probably find that the majority of responsive websites use media queries as most responsive frameworks (i.e. Foundation / Bootstrap) are built around them.
