Even though it is pretty self explanatory, there is no detailed overview of
the property, there are only notes and examples.
I believe there should be an overview.
The summary is concise, maybe too concise (I do not have ideas)? hehe.

The compatibility notes are not formatted the way they are currently
supposed to be (a table), which I think is more helpful (the current way,
not you way) for distinguishing the note for every version/edition.
The standards information is also not formatted in a table. Not sure which
is better, though.

Mixing mobile browsers and desktop browsers at the same line/section is
also not a good idea, in my opinion.

The example feels a little weird for me, due the first section
growing/shrinking after a delay.

But, overall, great work!
