Now you have :-D

My use case is the following one: I've a grid I want to fill with photos. Some photos span multiple rows / columns depending on their aspect ratio. I want to display all the photos - preferably in DOM order - and, if possible, avoid leaving holes in my layout.

I can either do that using a grid with dense packing or by emulating it via JavaScript. In the end, since Chrome already implemented that, I guess I would prefer if all browsers did the same and I could perform the whole layout without the help of JS.
