Reset or Normalize?

  • # December 8, 2012 at 3:41 am

    Hi again.

    I’m stuck on what to use right now for a small portfolio site. Which is better or which do you prefer to use coz’ I think most of you will say its a personal preference.


    Oh one more question on the boilerplate.
    It has settings for audios, videos which for the site I’m building doesn’t need. Do I have to include all those or trim it for the things needed only?

    With a reset, you often have to redeclare stuff that the reset ‘turns off’, so I almost always use Normalize.css. Also, I trim it on a per project basis; no need to have stuff in there that isn’t getting used.

    Agreed – tweak normalize to what you’re going to use anyway. That way like @
    joshuanhibbert it’s less work for you because you don’t have to re-daclare everything you intend to use and an added benefit is it’s less work for the browser and that means your site is faster.
