The New CSS Reset

This new CSS reset is using the new CSS features:

  • The global CSS reset keywords, ‘unset’ and ‘revert’ keywords.
  • The new property of ‘all’ which can reset all properties combined.
  • The :where() pseudo-class to remove specificity.
  • The :not() pseudo-class with multi arguments.

What is the-new-css-reset resetting?

This CSS reset is built from the understanding that we don’t want to use default styles we are getting from the browsers, except the ‘display’ property.

This CSS reset removes all the default styles which we are getting on specific HTML elements except the ‘display’ property, as I already mentioned, and special HTML elements like iframe, canvas, img, svg, and video.

In case you want the default style of the browser of a specific HTML element back, you can revert back to the default styles of the browser. For example:

input[type="radio"] {
    all: revert;

or all input elements:

select {
   all: revert;
