No inuit.css ?

Sumper Simple Grid System by Sacha Greif is good alsy

Just came across this grid framework today. Looks like a good one.

There are so many of these coming out. I tested a great number of them. Although designers hate Microsoft IE, the fact is, there are still many many users still using IE 6, 7, 8. To ignore them means you are losing a good chunk of visitors and potential sales. The ideal framework would support these older browsers. For me, it came down to Foundation and Bootstrap. I selected Bootstrap. Both are great and will increase the speed of your design. The downside to them is that there are so many classes that my site will never use. I know you can select the download to try to reduce the size. It would be cool if there were more options to better customize the download. Another thing I like about Bootstrap is that there are many sites with generators… like the excellent form builder. I suppose selecting one of these will be much like selecting a CMS, with everyone having their favorite. Cheers

Thanks for the list of responsive css frameworks. I do read most of them. I haven’t heard of all of them & I do not read them everyday, but as often as I can. Bootstrap is good and I think Zurb Foundation has to be my personal favorite as they incorporate everything.

I’m disappointed that Susy ( and Singularity ( are not in this list…
