Profound grid is a wonderful responsive coding framework build with SCSS. Profound Grid uses negative margins to calculate columns. Unlike with other grid systems, fluid layouts will look exactly the same in every browser.

It has a few examples included in the zip file which might be really useful even just to see the beauty of this framework such as the Multiple Grids layout and the Nested Grids layout which look really useful if you want to stand out from the crowd.

Tuktuk is “new kid on the block” and as they state on their website tuktuk is “not trying to compete with Bootstrap or Foundation because they play in another league. Just worry about creating responsive and fully extensible sites easily.”

It is a really light, only 9kb gzipped and it is all CSS3 powered.  The UI is amazing, the buttons, lists, tables, forms, icons and especially the navigation look absolutely great.  It is created by the amazing  Javi Jimenez – CTO and co-founder of tapquo.

I have a total of thirteen frameworks to test (I had less before reading this post ;-) ). I have no idea which one will be the best. I aim to pair each one with Get Simple CMS, and see which one works the best. Thanks!

Hi Riaan, Thanks for visiting:) I totally understand you. There are so many frameworks that it is difficult to choose the best one, as they have different features. You are more than welcome to share your experience here which will be greatly appreciated. Thanks again and good luck:)))

Will check back after a few years, when my testing's done ;-) To be honest, I wonder if many of these frameworks (not the ones you share, but those I aim to test) should be called full frameworks. I'm saying this with caution, but could it be that many of them are merely CSS resets on steroids? Hmmm, I'll see if this exercise is worth doing. Hopefully I come across one that is easy to understand and is more than CSS hyper-resets. I think I might be led down a few dead-ends; that's my honest opinion.
