Flex grid: cutting edge or mainstream?

I'm not sure whether to implement flex grid on a mainstream commercial web site:

"We recommend only using the flex grid on projects that can live with purely cutting-edge browser support." - Foundation 6 Flex Grid documentation

"You can use it now - browser support is great!" - Rafi Benkual

What are your thoughts?

Flexbox has great browser support now - it didn't always. If you can create sites for IE9 and newer and Android 4.4 and up then I would use it. Flexbox is also now the default version for Foundation since 6.4 was released yesterday.

Hey Chris, I have the same worries as you do about flex-box. I was recently chatting it up with some developers on a IRC channel, and they said the same thing that Rafi does. I know a little flex, and plan on going full steam ahead with it after I master the Legacy version of Foundation. It's a shame that IE didn't do what Chrome and Firefox did sooner. I hate supporting IE.
