Normalize.css: the latest in CSS reset

Geek Factor: 4

Normalize.css by Nicholas Gallagher and Jonathan Neal, is a new kind of css ‘reset’ tool that doesn’t reset the browsers CSS styles completely, but  keeps the useful defaults, along with fixing common cross-browser bugs.

From the site:

Normalize.css is a small CSS file that provides better cross-browser consistency in the default styling of HTML elements. It’s a modern, HTML5-ready, alternative to the traditional CSS reset.

You can get more information about normalize.css from the site, or download the code from GitHub.

Using reset CSS files in any form can be a big help in creating initial consistancy across all browsers — each browser handles the default styling for different HTML elements differently, so it’s nice to start your stylesheets fresh.
