The State of CSS 2022 Survey Results are now available. In browser news, we got many updates from the smaller browser vendors. Edge released version 108. Polypane bumped up to version 12. And Vivaldi released version 5.6 for desktop users.

On the release radar, we got Ember 4.9, Rome 11, Vite 4.0, and more. And the resources for this issue include a large set of design assets and other useful utilities.

The State of CSS 2022 Survey Results

The 2022 edition of the State of CSS survey ran between October 1st and November 1st. One month later we got the results neatly arranged in a nice report. Flexbox gap is the most adopted feature this year, Subgrid was the most commented-on feature, Bootstrap is still used by 80% of respondents, while Tailwind CSS climbs to second place with 46%.

Wrapping things up

This will be the last issue of the newsletter for this year. I am taking a break over the winter holidays to be able to spend more time with my family. I also plan to work some more on the Resources section of the website, to make it easier to find something useful.
