    No, that's just the page's background gradient so there's already something even before the inlined SVG renders.

    Actually, there's a hand-drawn SVG illustration of the hero landscape being displayed with a CSS blur filter while the image is loading.

    Glad you noticed! There's one or two things that could be a little bit better but, overall, it's a step in the right direction (there are no render-blocking scripts, no png/jpg, most svgs are minified and inlined, …).

    Stylesheets aren't expensive to execute at all. Do some research. End of topic, please.

    Nope, it's not absurd. It's, in fact, 100% right.

    1. li + li is not a descendant selector.
    2. You should basically never care about selector performance anyway. To quote Paul Irish:

    You are not allowed to care about the performance of * unless you concatenate all your javascript, have it at the bottom, minify your css and js, gzip all your assets, and losslessly compress all your images.
