Authors(3) :-Wari Denyefa Cletus, Adoubara Kakandar, Chukwu Nnaemeka Paul

As internet users continue to grow, numerous web application frameworks have been developed that best satisfy the user’s needs. The responsive web design (RWD) framework is a framework that can dynamically adapt and fluidly display a webpage in different sizes and resolution. Many RWD frameworks are available in the market to facilitate the responsive webpage layout. This paper compares the top three frameworks available based on their CSS feature, their grid and responsiveness and user interface (UI) and widget. Bootstrap, Foundation and Skeleton was likened as the case study of this paper. We also discussed some demerits of responsive web design.
