Unless you go crazy with it, your CSS will not impact your loading time much if at all. Loading time is typically primarily video, images, and audio.

I think with thoughtful design, most devices can be grouped into a small number of classifications (such as phone, small tablet, large tablet, and computer screen), with one media query per classification.

:information_source: The DevTools in chrome have a neat device simulator mode to help with responsive development.

you are right !

I thought there may be some common media queries based on the most used devices, but that relate directly to the website audience which mean it changes based on the project itself.

so research is a mandatory to figure those queries out.

thank you !

It's best practice to create them where they need to be used as far as how your website is designed.

But here is an article that will answer your question!
