    my understanding is that 8 is a clearer divisor for most of the numbers we see most in computer logic (8, 16, 32, 256, etc). Also, as browser default type sizes are 16px, then that browser default of 16px becomes an immediate multiple of 8. Screen sizes like 1024 x 768 are easy multiples for an 8 pixel grid.

    Newer iPad Pros sizes aren’t easy multiples of 10 or 8. So, the 8pixel grid may still be an easy mental model from which to design, but I don’t know how well it fits final rendered CSS anymore.

    This chart is super helpful. I am looking to replace my 2012 retina mbp next year.Figma and Affinity have become my most-used tools. May we get this chart in a larger size? Btw, when is your design tool coming out?
