If you check the performance break down for various websites, it is most commonly observed that the website performance slows down due to the high file size of CSS and Javascript files. Images and other content might not be a part of every page of the website, but css and js will mostly be included in almost all the pages of any dynamic website.

Speeding up a website can be done in various ways like reducing the number of CSS files and js files, optimizing web images, removing heavy plugins etc. There is another way to reduce the size of your webpage – by compressing the stylesheet. We can reduce the filesize of a CSS file by a very considerable ratio by removing unnecessary white spaces, comments, also making a bit modifications in the code will surely help.
