CSS Reset – Because Some Browsers Suck

February 14, 2012

I was recently reading an article on smashingmagazing.com and came across something I have to share. I always knew CSS Resets were used, but never understood why. From the article I was reading he says this:

“Browsers have different default styles for the elements we’ll be using, so understanding this and getting all of the elements to look the same is important.”

“You can either deal with these individually or, if you’re project will include more than just this navigation, use a reset to clear all of the styles and start fresh.”
