As if CSS wasn’t tricky enough, they had to go and add all this new stuff to it like Grid and Flex. To make matters worse, all of the new CSS layout techniques primarily use the display property, which now has over 40 possible values.

Martine Dowden offers an overview of the display property and demonstrates how to use it to display, hide, and lay out content.
