Why not use Eric Meyer's "Reset CSS" instead?

Eric Meyer's Reset CSS stylesheet, resets everything completely. Isn't that a better thing to do when making a website from scratch? Let me know what you guys think. Thanks.

P.S. for the people who don't know what I'm talking about check this website where it explains what it is + the source code => https://cssreset.com/scripts/eric-meyer-reset-css/

Reset CSS is another option. Though it is simpler than Normalize it is also rather different. While Normalize gives you a default formatting that is consistent across all browsers, Reset erases formatting altogether and forces you rewrite the CSS for any element you want to display.
