Discussion on: Harry Potter and the Order of CSS

Definitely some variant of group sort. I've personally dealt with both, and my experience is that when I'm modifying CSS, I'm very often modifying a few related properties (top & left, width & height, margin & padding, font-family & color, etc etc etc). The constant jumping up and down through a stack of properties that ABCSS causes is an absolute nightmare. Grouped CSS saves so much time in the long run. If tools exist to do it for you on save, then it's zero extra work, and the consistent ordering of groups gets absorbed subconsciously after like two hours.
