  1. This pen saved my sanity tonight. This is the best solution on the web I've seen for solving this pattern when you can't use flexbox because you need to when you need to support IE9. It's especially useful for art directed images that background:cover would be to labor intensive for maintaining the image's aspect ratio. Brilliant work! Many thanks!
