Top 10 Front-End Development Frameworks
(Editor’s note: purely for reasons of length and readability, this article is the first of two parts. This one focuses on the Bootstrap family, more will be profiled in the second part.) As the Web matures and the range of mobile devices we use to access it rapidly grows, our jobs as web designers and developers get considerably more complicated. A decade ago things were much simpler. Then, it was almost certain that most of our users were visiting our sites while sitting at their desk, looking at a large monitor. 960 pixels was more or less considered as a good width for a web page. Our main care was dealing with the dozen or so desktop browsers and jumping through a few extra browser hacks to support quirky old versions of Internet Explorer.

Note: It's still okay to use <b> and <i> tags in HTML5 and they don't have to be styled bold and italic, respectively (although if there is a more semantic element, use it). Addresses The <address> element is used for contact information for its nearest ancestor, or the entire body of work. Note: Each line in an <address> must end with a line-break (<br />) or be wrapped in a block-level tag (e.g., <p>) to properly structure the content. Abbreviations For abbreviations and acronyms, use the <abbr> tag (<acronym> is deprecated in HTML5).
