CSS Resets

When developing a new BlueBox website that looks best in all browsers you need reset all the browsers in order to remove irregularities that will occur when styling. If you don’t you will battle to get your website to look the same in IE, Firefox, Safari and Chrome. This could have easily been one of the biggest headaches I had when I was learning to develop websites. I have now seen the proverbial light and can’t imagine going back to developing without a CSS Reset.

There are many different CSS resets out there on the web but the one that I have found that works best when developing a BlueBox website is Eric Meyer’s (It’s also the first Google result for CSS Resets) , I have been using it for just under a year and I find it an extremely helpful CSS base to start from.

When using it I would suggest adding it to the top of your CSS file and then build from there. You could just call the reset.css by it’s self however that would be another http request for the browser to execute when your website loads so I wouldn’t recommend it.

How do you get past browser irregularities?
