The difference between Normalizing and Resetting CSS

Normalize.css

Makes browsers render all elements more consistently and in line with modern standards. It precisely targets only the styles that need normalizing.

  • Makes elements consistent across all browsers – a foundation to start from.

Nicolas Gallagher’s normalize.css is used by companies like Twitter, Github, and Soundcloud.

Reset.css

Reduce browser inconsistencies in things like default line heights, margins and font sizes of headings, and so on.

  • Removes all styling from elements – start from scratch.

Eric Meyer’s Reset is the most common approach.
