Exposing Reset Style Sheets
This and many other posts are also available as a pretty, well-behaved ebook: On Web Development.
Messing around a bit I wrote a little Chrome extension to display reset style sheets. I just liked the idea of learning when a website is taking a styling detour. The extension’s source code—essentially a tiny style sheet that assumes that the more common resets have not been renamed—is open and available on GitHub.
I’m Jens, and I’m an engineering lead and author. I’ve worked as a technical lead for companies like Google, I’m close to W3C and WHATWG, and I write and review books for O’Reilly and Frontend Dogma. I love trying things, not only in web development, but also in other areas like philosophy. Here on meiert.com I share some of my views and experiences.
