normalize.css – HTML5 equivalent of the traditional reset css

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.

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.
