Browser Support

Flexbox is supported by all major browsers, except IE versions before 10.

Some recent browser versions, such as Safari 8 and IE10, require vendor prefixes.

For a quick way to generate prefixes there is Autoprefixer, a third-party tool.

For older browsers (like IE 8 & 9) a Polyfill is available.
