Whole week was amazing! My friend from Ukraine visited me and it was just magical!

“Four New CSS Features for Smooth Entry and Exit Animations,” n.d. https://developer.chrome.com/blog/entry-exit-animations

Wow! New CSS will allow for animation to display and content visibility! The same goes with transitions.

“Old Dogs, New CSS Tricks,” n.d. https://mxb.dev/blog/old-dogs-new-css-tricks/

Short article on why we don’t really use recent CSS features. The author puts many reasons why like lack of support for old browsers, improvements are not really visible on the screen but rather in the codebase.
Personally I think there is one more reason. Whoever worked on maintenance of web project knows that touching style in one part of CSS can have a drastic impact on the whole application. Component tests are hard, almost none is writing them. We don’t use new features as the architecture of the application could be changed and suddenly issues can pop up.
