In search of element queries

Components need to be able to adapt to their available space, not the size of the viewport. Unfortunately, the closest tool we’ve had for addressing this need has been the Media Query, which was not designed for this purpose. As a result, we micromanage our components at different screen sizes - increasing the complexity and brittleness of the component design and lose modularity when a component has a new implementation.
This is a talk exploring element based queries - container queries and our need to go beyond the media query.
