❓ Why do I use a css reset

There are many inconsistencies between browsers. Like Firefox 3 has a margin on top of paragraphs but Internet Explorer 7 doesn’t have any margin. There are thousands of browsers with hundreds of versions. Each version at least has 500+ inconsistencies with different browsers’ different versions. How to keep up? This is an easy to use solution called reseter.css
