Why to use a CSS Reset?

What is a CSS Reset?

A CSS reset is a statements usually at the top of your style sheet, to reset all the browser defaults so that you can start with a fresh style sheet. 

Why do i need a CSS Reset?

Some of the browsers add margins and paddings and fonts and other things onto the default style sheet which is where some issues can occur, so the use of a CSS Reset, resets these values to 0 to get all the browsers on the same level. 

What does a basic CSS Reset look like?

CSS

*,
*::before,
*::after {
  box-sizing: border-box;
  margin: 0;
  padding: 0;
}

Is there a more Complex CSS Reset?

There are a lot of ones you can use to reset the css, the most used and therefore most popular one is the normalize.css which does a full reset of individual components rather than just using the * and also has some browser specific resets.
