Should I use grid or flexbox for page layout
Hi @guilh thank you so much for your videos. You are great at explaining and I really like your enthusiasm. Could you please tell me should I use Grid or Flexbox for page layout? Why would @Michiel Vo say this in his answer https://teamtreehouse.com/community/best-fallback-for-internet-explorer. Thank you so much :)

There's a newly-proposed CSS feature called "grid" that according to Can I Use? has almost no support yet. But this should not be confused with the "grid layout technique" taught by Treehouse, which uses only basic CSS features which are very well supported.
On the other hand, flexbox is also well supported, with a few known bugs in IE, making it also a good choice.
Can I Use? is a very good resource to become familiar with.

Grid will be the layout method of choice when it becomes more widely supported. CSS Grid has been designed with full layouts in mind where Flexbox has not. Grid can do so much more than Flexbox when it comes to layouts. For more info I'd recommend checking out Rachel Andrews blog or her book available on Book Apart.
