Things you can do with CSS that used to need JS

CSS has come a long way in recent years, bringing style and interaction to the web. For example just look at all the cool things you can do now with CSS animations!

However there are some common components that people are still reaching to JS to solve when they can achieve the same thing with CSS. Things like: Modals, tooltips, mobile menus, accordions and carousels.

What if I told you that each of these can now be done with CSS alone? That way the functionality renders at the same time as the design and makes it usable by more people.
