Response JS: mobile-first progressive enhancement in HTML5.
Response's most powerful feature is breakpoint sets. Using the sets, content for more-capable devices and/or larger viewports can be stored in HTML5 data attributes. Designers can create custom sets to make exactly the functionality that they want. (None are setup by default.) Breakpoints can be based on width | device-width | height | device-height | device-pixel-ratio or on custom props. Designers can use the default breakpoints (ideal for 960 grids) or specify custom breakpoints.

You can quickly and easily define as many different grids as you need by way of basic JavaScript conditional statements. Even if you are not extremely comfortable with JavaScript, if you are ambitious enough to tackle responsive web design you will most likely have no problem figuring this out. To create a responsive grid use the following code as a template. This template is fairly self-explanatory if you are familiar with CSS Media Queries.

25+ Must-have Chrome extensions for web designers and developers For many web designers and developers, Firefox is unsurpassable. For others, Firefox eats Chrome’s dust. For the past two years, since Google Chrome’s release, there’s been a raging debate on which browser is superior.
