UnloadCSS to the Rescue

Filed under: Tips & Tricks, Skinning

Recently I had an opportunity to play with UnloadCSS skinobject from Timo Breumelhof. What a nifty little tool to use for your front-end performance optimization.

I wrote an article a while back about cleaning up your default.css from the framework (or just get rid of it). There are many unnecessary CSS files get loaded within the framework (not to mention some not-so-good practices in CSS coding techniques within these files) that a web designer wants to take control of. Default.css is one of those files that need improvement.

UnloadCSS allows you to reduce the number of HTTP requests from a browser and therefore will speed up the performance of your web site. If there are many unnecessary CSS files loaded on a page when you working on aproject, you can use this skinobject to take back control. Thanks Timo!
