Reset CSS

Feb 29, 2020 • ☕️ 1 min read

In the CSS Reset way, we define all HTML tags to have no padding, no margin, no border, the same font-size and the same alignments.

The problem with CSS Resets is that they are ugly: they have a big chain of selectors, and they make a lot of unnecessary overrides. And even worse, they are unreadable when debugging.
