Wow Great! But is there any promise for natively supporting ES modules?

The new CSS property "flow-root" sounds really good!!! I'm really happy we can finally (soon) stop clear float, and and we will stop creating useless pseudo elements just for that, thanks! 🙂

that's the fun of shooting in NYC! You can't ask the city to be quiet while you shoot a video. 😉

The IndexedDB updates are fantastic! Thanks very much to the team. However it's still awkward to build complex information systems with IndexedDB, but it's very easy with WebSQL* will websql get removed at some point?* are there any plans to at least keep websql up-to date / bug free?* are there any plans to replace it with another SQL rbdms in the browser (possibly built on top of indexeddb, which I remember reading about that a while back)

RxDB is not an SQL database. I could simply use IndexedDB for non-sql datastructures.

Ah, that is disappointing. Is there anything we can do as developers to petition the chrome team / other browser makers to reconsider this or at the very least attempt to prevent its removal from chrome.To myself and many other developers WebSQL is a core feature and there is no replacement. If you read the comments on hacks.mozilla.org/2010/06/beyond-html5-database-apis-and-the-road-to-indexeddb/ you would get a sense of what many people feel.On another note, we love these videos, our team watches every single one in a big group as soon as they come out!

Yes, at some point, webSQL will be removed, but I have no idea on that timeframe, and I don't think there's any work being done on it at this point.As for a replacement, there's nothing that I know of in the works, but I could be totally wrong. Take a look at some of the IndexedDB wrappers that are available and see if that helps. It's not perfect, I know, and I'm sorry.
