Super Bowl Site in No Rush - CSS: Use Type Selectors

Optimization Week Issue #11, Jan. 28, 2004

On this Super Bowl week we thought it would be fun to review SuperBowl.com for speed and accessibility. Sure the teams are fast, but what about the official web site? In this week's speed tweak we show how type selectors in CSS can eliminate unnecessary classes.

If you've got an idea for a speed review or tip we want to hear from you. If you've found a site that you find particularly fast or slow let us know about it and it might appear in a future issue.
