Yep, when you are done editing your site, removing the white spaces from your CSS file can trim your file size down up to 30%. But who wants to go and remove those pesky white spaces and carriage returns out by hand? Not me, I can tell you that. And yes I am sure they have tools for that out there… somewhere… But I went and created a simple one for my self so I can optimize them CSS files and then Un-Optimize them back if I need to so I can actually read them.

Sometimes I also want to go and see how some element is made on another site but I go and view source and all I see is a bunch of code all clumped up together (it’s just optimized), but I can’t read any of it like that. So I use the Un-Optimizing tool to make it all readable again.
Bookmark this tool! You will need it, I guarantee it. :)
