CSS Update 2022: container queries, has-selector, subgrids and more

In 2022, there are more interesting innovations for web developers in the Evergreen browsers than there have been for a long time. Not only is the long-awaited “parent selector” available with ‘:has()’, but also @layer, which now allows the cascade to be influenced better. In addition, we get native container queries, not to forget subgrids. But also the small features like ‘aspect-ratio’, ‘gap’ in flexbox, fancy ‘text-decoration’-styling, ‘conic-gradient()’, new colour spaces and their manipulation, adjusting fallback fonts and much, much more.
