Resize-Resilient `content-visiblity` Fixes - Infrequently Noted
Alex posted a follow-up to a prior post on avoiding scrollbar jumping when using content-visibility.
It’s clever stuff—the combination of ResizeObservers and IntersectionObservers helping to avoid the shifting around that would occur otherwise.
This doesn’t do much though to eliminate the reservations I have about
content-visibility. In theory, it’s a great addition, but the fact that it seems to need so much supporting scaffolding to make it usable for a relatively simple use-case makes me feel like it may be missing a few other pieces of native plumbing before it’s really ready for primetime.
