Bit of a generla question this, so apologies in advance, but is there any drawbacks, or reasons why a websie shouldn't' be put together using Flexbox coding? We're looking at putting a new website together for a client, only a small one with five pages or so,  and have experimented with the code a bit, but is there any reason why it's better to avoid Flexbox for now, or are any issues with older browsers notably Internet Explorer possible to work around pretty straightforward?

 

Thanks!

Unless your client is specifically using IE10 or their target audience is stuck in the past, like some ancient Government sectors who can't update to a modern browser, then I would not worry about the 2 people still using IE. They are going to have an awful web-experience in general.

 

If you look at 'Can I use' website:

https://caniuse.com/#search=css%20flex

 

Css Flex has 98.7% global browser support.

 

Developers have been using Flex as a main workflow for the last 3, maybe even 4 years or so, time flies.
