INTRODUCTION

Views module allows you to show lists of your content in various html formats: tables, list items, floating grids, etc...
Newer browsers (IE 10+) can use CSS3 Flexbox as an alternative layout formatter.
However, different browsers support different syntax when implementing this.
This module provides a UI/point-click solution to provide a good base for supporting all syntaxes for all browsers that can support it.

It is possible that you may need to write custom CSS in your theme to fully realize your flexbox layout for Views content; this module just does the grunt work to write all the cross-browser CSS.
