CSS reset is the first thing I add in my css file in any web development project. I have been using necolas Normalize.css for years. But now modern browsers are much smarter.

Below is my own css reset inspired by Andy Bell's Modern CSS Reset.


/* Default Box sizing */
*,
*::before,
*::after {
  box-sizing: border-box;
}

/* Remove default margin */
body,
h1,
h2,
h3,
h4,
p,
figure,
blockquote,
dl,
dd {
  margin: 0;
}

/* Remove list styles on ul, ol elements with a list role, which suggests default styling will be removed */
ul[role='list'],
ol[role='list'] {
  list-style: none;
}

/* html core defaults */
html:focus-within {  
  scroll-behavior: smooth;
}
html {
	font-size: 18px;
	scroll-behavior: smooth;
}
html,
body {
  height: 100%;
}
/* Body defaults */
body {
	font-family: -apple-system, BlinkMacSystemFont, 'Segoe UI', Roboto, Oxygen, Ubuntu, Cantarell, 'Open Sans', 'Helvetica Neue', sans-serif;
	text-rendering: optimizeSpeed;
	font-size: 1rem;
	min-height: 100vh;
	line-height: 1.6;
}

/* A elements that don't have a class get default styles */
a:not([class]) {
  text-decoration-skip-ink: auto;
}

/* set maximum width of images */
img,
picture,
svg {
  max-width: 100%;
  display: block;
}

/* Inherit fonts for inputs and buttons */
input,
button,
textarea,
select {
  font: inherit;
}

/* Remove all animations, transitions and smooth scroll for people that prefer not to see them */
@media (prefers-reduced-motion: reduce) {
  html:focus-within {
   scroll-behavior: auto;
  }
  
  *,
  *::before,
  *::after {
    animation-duration: 0.01ms !important;
    animation-iteration-count: 1 !important;
    transition-duration: 0.01ms !important;
    scroll-behavior: auto !important;
  }
}
