About the CleanCSS Format and Optimize CSS Tool

The CSS optimizer was originally developed by some awesome dudes over at CSS Tidy. They built the program and have made it free for everyone to use. I stumbled across their optimizer one day while looking for help with my CSS. I wanted to know the shortest way I could style a background of a web site without having to use all the “background-image” and “background-repeat” tags. I found some other optimizers which I tried, but none worked as well as CSS Tidy. It was actually hosted on some random CD Burning website. Why? I have no idea.
