Date/Time Input Types are coming to Firefox, and I must say they look quite good too (as a reference: here's how Chrome implemented this): The implementation also looks familiar, doesn't it?. The date/timepickers are currently locked behind a flag in Nightly. Change dom.forms.datetime in ...

One of the trouble areas with CSS (other than it's too hard to master) is that it's too easy to write a lot of it. (I'll just leave it here. Lately we've seen far too much anti-CSS talk, I'm sure most of it is not wrong, but maybe not too productive either.) Therefore anything you can do to reduce the CSS code you ...

CSS is no longer versioned, but instead splitted into modules with Levels.

There is no CSS Level 4. Independent modules can reach level 4 or beyond, but CSS the language no longer has levels https://www.w3.org/TR/CSS/#css-level-4

CSS polyfills are harmful until Houdini API support, will be either

* Too big
* Too slow
* Too incorrect

since can't access

* Fetching the CSS
* Parsing the CSS
* Creating the CSSOM
* Handling the cascade
* Invalidating styles
* Revalidating styles
