CSS Compressor/Minifier

CSS Compressor/Minifier

Online CSS Minifier/Compressor. Free! Works with Media Queries. Provides an API. Simple Quick and Fast!  This is a web interface to minify your JavaScript, CSS and HTML. Use this utility to compress your CSS to increase loading speed and save on bandwidth as well. You can choose from three levels of compression, depending on how legible you want the compressed CSS to be versus degree of compression. The “Normal” mode should work well in most cases, creating a good balance between the two.

Minifying CSS takes the beautified, well formed CSS code that you have written and removes the spacing, indentation, newlines, and comments. These elements are not required for CSS to be used successfully. It also makes the CSS more difficult to read. The best practice of many developers is to maintain a beautified version, and when rolling out their project will run the styles through a minification program. They will also combine their many style files into one file.

The CSS Compressor greatly reduces the size of standard CSS code, stripping out unnecessary characters and implementing CSS shortcuts, allowing you to minimize the size of CSS file downloads on your web site. The server processes it on-the-fly and returns the output to you without storing anything.  So if you use this tool to compress a super-secret bit of CSS code (if there is such a thing) it is not stored or read by me.
