Home Forums CSS How many media queries is too many? Re: How many media queries is too many?


No, you’ve misread, they say that external style sheets called from within the BODY slow down page rendering not sheets links in the HEAD.

Certainly the number of stylesheets should be kept to a minimum because of the number of http requests but whether you have a single css file, 20 of them or you’ve declared all your styles in the head of the document the amount of data is the same and will have little or no impact on page loading.

>However, you can still make a template for each section of your site, and update the code to multiple pages in minutes.

Why should I use a template when I can have a single CSS file and ALL my pages update immediately?
