The cascading style sheet (CSS) frameworks are scripts meant to allow easier and more standard-compliant web design, Many professional web design companies make use of these frameworks. It helps to speed up your website development, allows for cross-browser functionality & enforces good website design habits.
This is one of the most reliable, most commonly used, and fully-fleshed out CSS frameworks. It is the most popular mobile-first responsive framework online used on almost 4% of websites on the entire web. Bootstrap has a huge community of users from where you can learn from other users, so it will be hard to have an issue that somebody has not detailed in the community.
This is also a mobile-first responsive CSS framework just like Bootstrap but with some differences. Foundation is less opinionated than Bootstrap, and that can be a good or bad attribute depending on your priorities in the website development. One notable feature in Foundation is the built-in REMs instead of pixels, which allows users to state percentages instead of strict measurements. And just like Bootstrap, the default installation can be bulky, so you may select the components you want to include in the download.
3. Semantic User Interface (UI):
Semantic UI is a front end framework uniquely built to enhance website development or designers with a shared vocabulary around UI. This functions much more than CSS libraries. And if you want a huge range of already great looking components, just go for Semantic UI.
This is an open source CSS framework which is built with SASS and full flexbox integration. The three main selling points of Bulma include its modern cross-browser compatibility, its small file size and its ease of learning.
This is a starter framework based on Google’s material design. It provides a device agnostic style framework and has low compatibility with Internet Explorer 10+. It also lacks the potential for future cross-browser compatibility.

UIKit is a modular front end framework that is built to help establish fast, robust, and modern looking pages and applications. It has a large file size just like Bootstrap or Foundation. It also has one of the largest ranges of UI and interactivity components from which users can choose which they wish to put in the development of their site.
A quick look impresses me, and I wonder why this offering is not known to more people. Anyway, what makes Pure, well, pure, is that it’s a pure CSS framework. 🙂 In fact, the developers have gone the extra mile and broken it up into different CSS modules that you can import as needed. So, if you need only the grid system, there’s no need to import the entire CSS and add to the site’s load time. The Pure grid comes in several flavors: 5-point, 2-point, 24-point, etc., so when it comes to creating columns, you have a lot more flexibility.
Susy is a little-known framework at this point, but it’s a fascinating and refreshing idea. Another pure-layout framework, Susy does away with all predefined ideas of float, grid, Flexbox, tables, or anything else, and lets you compose the kind of layout you want. “Compose” is the keyword here, as Susy is meant for creating highly modular, staggering layouts with ultra-complex, unusual, and precise needs.
