    Well, I suppose on some level, it does. It has to go through and apply that to each and everyone element on the page. But I wouldn’t worry too much. It doesn’t slow it down at any noticeable speed. And since browsers and web connections are always getting better, it shouldn’t be something to worry about.

    Noahgelman, can you please stop dragging up old threads from like 2 year back no one is interested in anymore? Cause now my thread is half-way down the page :P
    Other than that, whats the use in bringing up 2 year old threads?

    Sorry. It’s just I was going through some of the earliest posts out of curiosity and I found that some had hundreds of views, and no answers. I opened them up to see what they were like and some of them had some didn’t have too difficult questions. And I know none of the original posters care anymore, but all these posts show up when you search for something. So someone at any time can have one of these issues, do a quick search, and still not find an answer. I figured it would be nice to hear some answers for some old smaller issues as well as improve the overall search/answer power of the site.

    It’s also a pretty boring day at work today :D

    Technically, it’s the slowest possible selector there is. The only thing slower?

    Code:
    * * { }

    =)
