Nonsense. Grid wasn’t on track to become a web standard when IE implemented it in 2011. And we would not have it in every major browser today if they hadn’t done so.
Container queries are stuck in the same spec proposal-rejection loop that Grid was seven years ago. Somebody needs break the cycle and implement *something*

I think this should be closed down and the votes given back to the devs, there is currently nothing standardized beyond resizeObserver() in this space and that should be its own entry.
Because element/container queries seem to be very hard or impossible for browsers to implement, I thought of a slightly different approach that works with CSS conditions to achieve the same goal:
There is also a post on the WICG Discource about the CSS conditions feature:

I've been working on a syntax, a plugin that implements it, and a specification for element queries!
Here's what I have working so far: http://elementqueries.com
And a bunch of examples of the syntax in use on Codepen: http://codepen.io/search/pens?q=eqcss&limit=all&type=type-pens
It would be a true revolution in the way responsive design works!
