    According to Seroundtable.com, Google caches CSS and Javascript files for a very long time so if you use CSS/JS to render a page for new content or what new URLs are created, it may affect your SEO if Google has problems rendering your pages.

    Seems very problematic as alot of sites rely on CSS/JS to structure and build out a HTML web page. CSS can be used to hide certain HTML for certain viewports for different devices/screen sizes etc.

    Very interesting. I always update a timestamp on my CSS and JS and this would help prevent these issues.
