6: Modern CSS and JS we're excited about 🤩
In this episode we're really excited to talk about some of the recently released web platform features. Some of them have been here for a little while, some are very new and some are still just experimental. 2021 has been a year full of new CSS features and many more are coming. We talk about what excites us the most in frontend-land and which new features solve problems we have had in the past.
