Ability to create sites using a 'mobile-first' approach (mobile styles first in CSS cascade)

In projects where mobile is the primary way an audience will view a site or app (and this number will probably only ever increase; one of my clients has 80% mobile views for example) – it often makes sense to start the cascade 'mobile-first' rather desktop first as webflow currently works – it helps designers, developers and stakeholders keep focussed about their audience, the content, the effectiveness of the UI decisions and importantly, generally just 'think' more from a mobile-orientated point of view (+ arguably some performance gains depending on how the cascade and code is setup).

If a majority of your audience use mobiles – I can't think of any advantages of starting desktop-first. I find webflow's approach encourages mobile views to become basically stacked versions of the desktop view – and while agree that is essentially what most mobile sites are these days (and is often the best solution), I think the approach generally discourages more creative solutions to optimising the experience for small screens.

(Discussed at length in the forums, often with much argument!)

    Yesssss! One of the main reasons I haven't committed to building a full site with Webflow!

    This would be a fantastic option for mobile first workflow.
