What is the point of display inline if the elements dont keep there shape? Is it a pointless?
Well, in some cases it can be really useful, if you have to scale for a small screen, it is nice they loose there big lumpy shape, and become small instead.
I once used it for a navigation menu on mobile or something similar. Anyway, knowing it exist can sometimes give you a way out
Oh ok I totally understand now Its to save space in certain situations.
