Benefits of using CSS sprites are

  • It is a technique where one has a large image containing a set of small images. Those images can be broken down with the help of CSS to disintegrate into multiple images.
  • It helps large images or pages to load faster hence, saving a lot of time. It cuts back HTTP requests. It is also flexible over website’s layout and design.
  • The concept of CSS sprites is used to reduce the loading time for a web page because it combines the various small images into one image. It reduces the number of http requests and hence the loading time.
