how there can be no Zurb Foundation on the list?


Because it's a puff piece for Usersnap's feedback service. Bourbon, Inuit, and Compass would probably be worth mentioning as well. Admittedly geo-bootstrap was new to me, so thanks for that :) (Rather, pass the eye drops!)

For anyone else wondering, links plus taglines

http://bourbon.io/ A simple and lightweight mixin library for Sass

http://inuitcss.com/ a powerful, scalable, Sass-based, BEM, OOCSS framework

http://compass-style.org/ Compass is an open-source CSS Authoring Framework

Geo Bootstrap is beautiful in a very special way ;) Looking into Bourbon, Inuit, and Compass for a follow-up post.

Cool, adding it to a follow-up post!

Been playing with frameless[1] which seems like a nice approach but I'm not really sure how to make it responsive. Anyone had some success?

I'm still waiting for some bold soul to come forward and tell us that tables are the way to go instead of wasting hours upon hours on half-assed CSS imitations of tabular goodness.

Fuck semantics!

Am I doing responsive design wrong? I've tried three times to make responsive designs for three different website types and they all seem to work fine but I can never get pixel-perfect designs done right.

It seems mediocre for both desktop and mobile, instead of just doing a great design for desktop. What am I missing here? I would love some pointers. Should I just forget about pixel-perfect designs when building responsive websites?

There is going to be some aspects of the design that can't be pixel perfect when it comes to a fully responsive site. This is because of the use of % based width to make the grid fluid.

If you're looking for pixel-perfect versions you're best off working with breakpoints and keeping the design rigid up until each breakpoint.

It's more work, but if you really want/need pixel-perfection then it's really the only way to go.
