You’re right. There’s a number of features I didn’t touch on due to the article length already being longer than expected, but indeed, Skia makes Flutter an entirely new approach to cross-platform development and one that’s no more hindered by browser and/or native component limitations. If it can be drawn onto the screen, it will just work. It’s a powerful concept and puts a lot of that power into the designer’s and developer’s hand!
