Oh, absolutely. I wrote this tutorial as my very first exploration of CSS grid. It occurred to me, that it did borrow some basic elements from <table>. But of course, it doesn’t mean it should be thought of or used as one. Also, I think everything you’ve said is true. Yes auto-fill / min/max-content are some of the things that make the grid unique in its own right (and 1fr units)
