A Modern CSS Reset

I remember when Eric Meyer created the first CSS reset back in 2008 (or at least that was the first time I really started using it). I think this version from Andy is a modern approach and something which is worth considering. If you’re using any reset please make sure you understand what the declarations are doing (Andy explains this) so that you’re clear on the decisions your making and how it impacts the rest of your styles

In this modern era of web development, we don’t really need a heavy-handed reset, or even a reset at all, because CSS browser compatibility issues are much less likely than they were in the old IE 6 days. That era was when resets such as normalize.css came about and saved us all heaps of hell. Those days are gone now and we can trust our browsers to behave more, so I think resets like that are probably mostly redundant.
