Websites That Will Help Improve Your CSS
There are many ways you can improve your CSS from combining selector, grouping and combining. But sometimes with large CSS files things can start getting out of control.
Using a web app will help you identify areas of your CSS your can improve on. These should be able to catch duplicate styles so you can group them therefore reducing the size of your CSS file.
Here is a list of websites you can use to improve your CSS file.
