Does Flexbox make Floats obsolete?
From the looks of it, I have no need to use floats at all anymore. Flexbox just seems like the much more easier, simpler way... I'm sure there are things that specifically require floats, but what are they?

You can use float for their real purpose. Make an element float on the left or the right (like an image in a newspaper article =)). Using float to align items was not the real purpose of float.
