UseContext hook provides a way to pass data through the component tree without having to pass props down manually at every level. It helps maintaining cleaner code. In other words – it provides a way to share values between components without having to explicitly pass a prop through every level of the tree.Read More React Hooks – useContext hook example
UseReducer is an alternative to useState. It works better when you have complex state logic that involves multiple sub-values (e.g. if your state is multidimensional object) or when the next state depends on the previous one. UseReducer hook accepts a reducer of type

Hooks are a new functionality of React, thanks to which we can “hook into” React features, which makes writing applications easier. First hook that I want to show you is called useState and it is a hook that allows you to use state in a functional component (before hooks you could not use states in functional components, which is why they were called stateless components. Now the name has been changed to functional components).Read More React Hooks – useState hook example

Standard appearance of hyperlinks on a website depends on the browser. Each browser can display links and their variants (with different pseudo-classes) in a different way.

I must admit that I rarely used such units of length as rem and em so far. I usually used pixels (px), because somehow it was easier for me to associate what size a given element will have.
The rem and em units, however, have one advantage over pixels – they can be set in correlation to parent font size (em) or root font size, which most often is <html> elemet (rem). This gives the ability to manipulate sizes for many elements at once. The default root font value is usually 16px (but it depends on the browser).Read More Rem, em – length units in CSS
