A CSS sprite combines multiple background images into a single image. Spriting makes web pages faster because it reduces the number of HTTP requests required to load a web page.

Other sprite tools (like CSS Sprite Generator and CSS Sprites generator) are useful for combining multiple background images into a single sprite image.

How much does SpriteMe help reduce HTTP requests? The savings for the Alexa U.S. Top 100 shows SpriteMe replaces 9 background images with 1 sprite on average, for an overall reduction of 8 HTTP requests per page.

SpriteMe is an open source project, with all the usual links: Code, Group, Bugs, and Contact.
