When CSS was invented my mind was blown.
How can style code live in a SEPARATE FILE from your HTML?
Up until that point, we'd been using tag attributes for styling!
I can remember calling a friend in NYC to try to figure it out together.

Is this something a couple browsers implemented at the same time?

Or did you have to bundle some sort of compiler in with your website code to have the CSS actually style your HTML?

No compilers were required!
The two browsers, as I recall, that supported it at the beginning were IE and Netscape Navigator.
It was a simpler time. Haha!
