The web is changing at a great speed and is getting more and more responsive day by day and so its designs. Today, designers are now focusing on creating more responsive websites. Innovations and new technologies have given the web development a new and better dimension. Today’s websites are interactive, visually attractive as well as responsive.

Creating responsive website is a pleasant and refreshing shift but it requires loads of hard work and efforts. Such websites need to have two important components; one of them is a flexible fluid grid and the other one is responsive images.

Here, we are presenting 44 flexible grid tools that will help you in creating responsive websites. Here is the full collection after the jump. Enjoy!
