Yet even modern browsers implement features at different times. It’s frustrating to read about the bleeding-edge of modern development only to think it’s all unusable for years to come.
Reboot, Resets, and Reasoning By Chris Coyier On reset I saw in an article by Nicholas Cerminara the other day (careful visiting that link, looks like they have some tracking scripts run wild) that Bootstrap 4 has a new CSS reset baked in they are calling Reboot: Reboot, a collection of element-specific CSS changes in a single file, kickstart Bootstrap to provide an elegant, consistent, and simple baseline to build upon.
