Most of website in modern days has plenty of CSS (cascading style sheets) to embark upon the beautiful presentation of website. Most of times while attending all of these functionalities we tend to find out that, there are many unused css that are still lurking in website and most of these are not wanted. Still these stay within website and continue to make loading times delay and that is in the long term detrimental for the growth of website.
The presence of large number of unused CSS delays website loading time considerably and that proves to be major distraction for site visitors. Not only this delays page loading time but also Google likes such sites with faster website loading time for faster indexing as with due course of time everyone has found out even if the net speed is in higher denomination we tend to find and enjoy the faster page loading times.
Why identifying unused css is important?
Identifying the unused CSS is a major problem for webmasters. As one mistake could let their site completely down and that can be detrimental for the health of website as well as that of considering in the revenue point of view. I have tried hard to find out unused css all by myself by searching out unused part but most of time these tasks looks to be extremely tedious and difficult to execute and ultimately I leave it.
Then, I come across one mightiest site namely https://unused-css.com/ from Google search and am amazed to find out its performance.
It provides accurate CSS performance and removes all of these unwanted and garbage CSS and then clean it up and my site up and running with fast speed. You only have to register your website and then within few minutes it should send you the information about your css have optimized. It should give you the information in the email and then with it the list of optimized file and then you can install that files or copy and paste it on yours website from cPanel.

You have two option one is that of compress option which reduces the css file size but it is not reader friendly so that whenever you edit the css files it would not be readable at all.
It is important to edit css files from the side of cPanel not from the side of wordpress admin. Always back up css file or any other theme or wordpress files before editing. It was earlier 665 kb and after using unused-css site to remove unwanted css I found that it turns into 174kb and that is exceptional and wonderful work and that must be going to make my site to load faster and provide superior performances.
