Global CSS property usage

Post by Albert Wiersch » Tue May 10, 2016 3:25 pm

While doing research for the next release of CSE HTML Validator, I came across this Microsoft site that I had not seen before (probably because it's fairly new) and wanted to share the link because I thought it was very interesting.

It's about CSS property usage. It shows several hundred CSS properties and their frequency of use plus it shows what values are most used for those properties.

https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/m ... orm/usage/

Here's a good intro to it:

Yep! That's the link I was looking for but couldn't find. :) I think I tried changing the "es-es" part to "en" but that didn't work. I should have tried "en-us".

Thanks for finding that. I'll update the link.

On another note, I noticed they say that background-repeat-x and background-repeat-y are used on 41.2% of web sites. That's really high for an invalid and non-existent CSS property (should be background-repeat). I think something is wrong with their data here... maybe the way they are measuring it. Or am I missing something?

Thanks for the links.

One thing I gleaned from the Microsoft page was the use of flex, which I found very interesting: https://css-tricks.com/snippets/css/a-guide-to-flexbox/

Thanks. I used that and some other resources to improve Flexbox support in v17. Good info!
