9 Underutilized Features in CSS


List assembled by Jordan Little:

  1. The CSS calc() function
  2. The pointer media query
  3. The currentColor variable

  5. Counters using only CSS
  6. Predictable tables with fixed layout
  7. Easy form states using adjacent sibling selectors
  8. Algebraic nth-child() selection
  9. Animating elements with animation-fill-mode

As a tenth feature I’d like to add the use of the well supported viewport units.
