Normalize.css is an alternative to CSS resets. The project is the product of 100′s of hours of extensive research by @necolas and @jon_neal on the differences between default browser styles.
The aims of normalize.css are as follows:
- Preserve useful browser defaults rather than erasing them.
- Normalize styles for a wide range of HTML elements.
- Correct bugs and common browser inconsistencies.
- Improve usability with subtle improvements.
- Explain the code using comments and detailed documentation.
It supports a wide range of browsers (including mobile browsers) and includes CSS that normalizes HTML5 elements, typography, lists, embedded content, forms, and tables.
Despite the project being based on the principle of normalization, it uses pragmatic defaults where they are preferable.
The future of CSS gives us much to be excited about: On the one hand, there’s a whole range of new methods that are going to revolutionize the way we lay out pages on the web; on the other, there’s a new set of graphical effects that will allow on-the-fly filters and shaders. People love this stuff. Magazines and blogs are full of articles about them.
But if these tools are the show ponies of CSS, then we should gave some love to the carthorses: the nuts-and-bolts components of the language, like selectors, units, and functions.
