Compressing your CSS once you are finished is a great way to optimize your code and make your CSS styles load faster. Make sure you keep a backup of your original stylesheet in case you want to make changes.

Skip the click, and speed up your work with these shortcuts. Makes Photoshop design much more faster than you expect. Save your design time by more than 1/4 ( One by Fourth or say 75%).
It's what I have felt as a web designer.
Here are those best power shortcuts, for web developer's performance built-up:
Access menus when in full screen mode
Press SHIFT + F and the file menu will appear at the top of the screen.
To apply the last-used filter:
Apply the last-used filter with new settings:
Change Blending Modes without using the Layers palette
Select the marquee tool, and you can use these commands:
Change brushes without using the Brush palette
'[' or ']' keys
Change background outside an image
Change the opacity of a brush or layer
Simply use the number keys. For example, 1 will give you 10% opactiy, while 9 will give you 90% opacity (0 gives you 100%!).
Copy a layer
Hold ALT and click/drag on your canvas.
If you've got a selection, then CTRL + ALT and drag (within that selection) will copy and float the contents.
With no selection active, CTRL + ALT and drag will copy the contents of that layer to a new layer and drag it.
Create a clipping path without knowing how to use paths
Create new Layers without using the Layers palette
You can do this in a number of ways:
Fill layers or selections without the Paint Bucket
SHIFT + BACKSPACE.
ALT + BACKSPACE.
Free up space on the scratch disk(for handling disk space)
It sounds silly, but if you create a really small file, say 1x1 pixel and save it as a PSD, then this will pull the chain and flush the scratch
choose EDIT > PURGE > ALL or
EDIT > PURGE > CLIPBOARD
Hide palettes and rulers
Hide the marching ants
CTRL+H (but don't forget to put it back as soon as you can!)
Interact with Layers without using the Layers palette
There are several ways to do this.
To select a layer without the layers palette:
Note, in version 6, transparency (or opacity) lower than around 30% will prevent you from selection a layer with the second option.
To move layers without using the layers palette:
To select layers without using the layers palette:
