Designers are still hesitating to use HTML 5 and css3 in their prototype. This also gets a restriction on their design. Restricting the designers is completely like ruining the design.
To retain the design as is and to convert it with the design effects HTML 5 and CSS3 is introduced. Coding a HTML5 document right from the scratch was a very time consuming task for the developes.
Frameworks have been introduced for css3 and HTML 5 to save time. I definitely agree that many frameworks, if unaltered, contain a lot of fluff that could be trashed. However, I also find them to be quite useful and timesaving.
The solution is customization. Every framework introduced needs bit oftweaking to make it fit for our website.
Out of all the frameworks, I found 52frameworks the most suitable for my website. Less of customization, more of features and very time saving.
The 52 Framework is a new, and very much under construction, framework built specifically for utilizing HTML5 and CSS3 in a cross-browser, standards-compliant manner.
Features of the frameworks:
- All HTML 5 tags included (header, nav, aside, section, footer)
- Cross browser use of and
- New form elements
- Modified Reset Style sheet for HTML5
- Use of the new ::selection selector that enables you to customize the properties of selected text.
- Rounded Corners for any block level element
- Text-Shadow for text elements
- Box Shadow for block level elements
This framework also includes all the hacks and the scripts to make the new features compatible to all browsers. The other frameworks need more of customization and contain much of some elements which we really cannot implement at this stage with IE6 eating the most of the hold.
Leave a comment below and tell me what you think about this framework. If you tried any other and found any new useful feature, let me know.
