FaCSSt: CSS & Performance


Ahh… CSS and performance. Two of my favourite things!

But how well do they play together?

It depends… In this very matter-of-fact talk, we’ll be looking at all of the different ways CSS can make our websites faster or slower. From the common and perhaps more obvious, to the unusual and obscure ways in which CSS can impact performance for better or worse.
