If it was included the right way, Normalize should be invisible from the final CSS output tho. Either you merge it manually with your own declarations or you merge selectors with some PostCSS (although not recommended as this would potentially change the order of things). Another reason not to just throw some stuff and make an extra http call for things that you would rewrite anyway when writing your own custom CSS. Being able to tell it's used on many websites tells a lot about how much the devs responsible for them care about performance and optimisation.

Call me an old fart if you want but after close to 20 years of CSS I'm yet to find a CSS (not talking about JS here) framework that makes your life easier AND doesn't impact performance.
