Flexbox Browser support?

Hi there-

I am on my way to building my first site and wanted to use Flexbox for some of the layout because most of it is pretty basic and from what I have read online, it seems to be the best way to go for my layout.

I can’t seem to find any information to confirm if it is fully supported yet or if I will still need to use the vendor prefix to ensure support. Does anyone know if Flexbox is fully supported and also, what is the best source to use in order to check when nonstandard CSS properties are standardized?

Thanks!

caniuse.com is a great resource for checking browser compatibility. Currently, most flexbox properties are supported in Chrome, FF and IE 10+.

You can use this script - it will write all the prefixes to flexbox depending on which browser they are using :)
