This attribute can be used to make the children of the element equal in size.
For a horizontally oriented element, this will make all of its children have the width of the widest child. For a vertically oriented element, this will make its children all have the height of the tallest child.
All of the children are displayed at the size required by the content or as specified by the width and height attributes or the CSS width and height properties.

Why does MDN look different?
MDN is changing to focus just on documenting web technologies. All the same great content is still here; we’re just changing some visual elements and navigation, to help you more quickly find the web technology docs you’re looking for.
But don’t worry, MDN and Mozilla are still together! In fact, we're updating MDN’s look to reflect Mozilla's new logo and colors.
