|Intent to implement and ship: CSS display:flow-root||Mats Palmgren||12/21/16 9:56 AM|
A display:flow-root element generates a block container box, and lays out
its contents using flow layout. It always establishes a new block
formatting context for its contents (per CSS2).
This is intended to make "clearfix" hacks unnecessary.
The implementation is fairly trivial: it adds a new keyword to
the 'display' property and ties that to existing code for
Link to standard:
Platform coverage: all platforms
Estimated or target release: Fx53
Preference behind which this will be implemented:
DevTools bug: no need
Do other browser engines implement this?
Not that I am aware of, bugs have been filed for WebKit/Blink:
Tests: added as part of the implementation
Security & Privacy Concerns: none

Sounds good to me, except that I think it's worth explicitly raising
on www-style that we're planning to ship this, since the spec for it
isn't yet in (or near) CR. (The bug says the editors believe the
feature is stable enough to ship, but that's worth raising more
widely before we ship it.)

Fwiw, there is also a feature request for Edge:
originally posted as a bug (but closed on the ground that the bug tracker is for bugs while feature requests should go to UserVoice):
For some reason cannot add any of those two URLs to the “See Also” field in Bugzilla: it rejects with the message “Invalid Bug URL” (looks like there is some white list of bug trackers that doesn’t account for Microsoft’s bug trackers).
