    Was having trouble matching a image width, found that

    #footer img {
    width: inherit

    worked well for me. However, it seemed to make the page load slower.


    Hadn’t thought of that. I [opened up a JSFiddle][1] to play around with it.

    Your implementation only works if your image’s container has a fixed width or if it has a percentage based width of 100%.

    If say the container has a 40% width then the image will only take of 40% of its container.

    I’m not saying don’t use inherit – just to be aware of that behavior.
