Optimizing CSS Style Sheet
I have a custom CSS sheet for my personal site mariosanchez.org. I decided to make some changes to optimize for speed without altering the look and feel of the site too much. The main idea is to take advantage of browsers' default settings as much as possible, and only add custom styling to parts of the site where we want a distinct look (e.g. navigation, image gallery, icons).
Some of the things I've changed are:
- Remove custom font: I'm using the standard browser font
font-family: "DejaVu Sans", sans-serif;to eliminate the server call to Google Fonts.
- Remove font size declaration: I'm removing the
font-sizedeclaration we will use the default browser font size
- Remove all Heading styling: I'm removing all style declarations from my headings and letting the browser defaults control them.
- Remove all
listyling: Except making the bullet points square
