    I've really enjoyed using on my projects and even built it into a CMS tool that I made. It's a lighter option than bootstrap and I find it has 99% of the things I need out of the box.

  8. Smaller and faster than other CSS frameworks. Easier to learn, and easier to use than other CSS frameworks. Uses standard CSS only (No jQuery or JavaScript library). Speeds up and simplifies web development. Supports modern responsive design (mobile first) by default.
