Differences between `auto-fill` and `auto-fit`

The difference happens when there are not enough content to fill up all columns.

When the screen is wide enough to fill in more "minmax(200px, 1fr)" columns, auto-fill will fill extra empty 200px width columns.

When it is auto-fit, extra column works only where there is content there. So there won’t be any extra empty columns in auto-fit.

  1. Try resizing the browser.
  2. Try adding more photos into the container.
  3. Try changing the minmax value.
