    There seem to be too many and all have some problems. Currently I am using Adobe XD because it is very quick, easy and integrates well with the other Adobe stuff, and is intuitive for people who are familiar with Adobe. But it doesn't have adequate prototyping capability yet. They release more every month but still aren't there yet. Then I copy things from XD to Sketch which is surprisingly easy, and then use Principle which is nicely integrated with Sketch. Principle can do very sophisticated animations and so forth, but also can become wildly complicated in terms of the ability to control so many animations. I've had trouble moving back and forth between Principle and Sketch once a lot of interactions have been built in Principle. I do want to give Protopie more of a try. I did import an XD file to Protopie and it came out a little weird; so I didn't continue trying it. I've been wondering if anyone has used Squarespace or Wix for prototyping and how that turned out?

    Hi Nelson: When will Webflow support some of the newer layout functionality in CSS: CSS- grid + multi-columns, and CSS-shapes. Also, are there any plans for facilitating integration with React, Angular or Vue?

    I like it a lot also -- pushes back against the regimented scientific data-driven corridor, requires a bit of curiosity and some sense of joy when confronted with the unusual. Many many sites like this could actually make the internet interesting once again.

    Dave Rupert from the Shop Talk Show has been working in windows and writing about it, for reasons that he explains early in the series, for over a year now. You might want to check out daverupert.com. His stuff is more development-focused but may be of interest.

    I've never had a problem with their presence in search results and don't see why Google should do anything differently. It is easy to choose not to visit them. But they often appeared as something a friend had liked in my Facebook feed. Their site provided a less than positive user experience, for me anyway, without an ad blocker on a phone. I simply indicated that I didn't want to see their stuff anymore on Facebook and I haven't since.
