How outrageous. I’ve been testing with a few different files and I’m finding it’s 30 or 31 files is the most you can use. Now you may be saying, “Nobody needs 30 CSS files anyway”. My two-part response:
- Yes, this is horrible for performance and, in general, very poor practice - however:
- The place of software vendors, browser vendors in this case, is to create a product that interprets standards and specifications correctly, not to dictate how those standards and specs are implemented.
“Innovation” by browser vendors should come *outside* of that - in the non-standards-defined areas. Example: Firefox addons, Opera’s mouse gestures, etc.
