A framework is basically regarded as a software application which aids developers in quickly designing and developing dynamic websites. With the advent of HTML5 and CSS3, design and development is becoming an easier endeavor for nearly everyone..
A well structured CSS framework serves as the basic conceptual foundation by which one can use as “scratch” for their web-projects. For instance, instead of defining global reset, consistent baseline, typographic rules or basic styles for forms over and over again, so that every time you work on a new project — one can now prepare a default-style once, and reuse it in all of their future projects, therefore saving time.
The HTML5 framework provides many useful features such as beautiful typography, video players, form validation, design section and many more features which enable users to easily develop web applications, and well designed websites in a shorter period of time with less effort.
