With the 3rd version of the great Bootstrap out for about 4 and a half months now, people have had their time to play around with it, learn the changes, find new features, and build amazing things.
Page layout for tomorrow.
Set column and gutter widths, choose the number of columns, and switch between pixels and percentages.
All without any .grid_x classes in your markup. Oh, and did we mention it's responsive?
Runs on LESS, SCSS, or Stylus.
I'm sure we all agree that responsive web design has been one of the biggest subjects in the last few years and will continue with the growth of mobile. As a senior front and backend developer with a strong interest in research and development at my company, I am responsible to evaluate techniques like RWD. Whenever I received a link to a totally new CSS grid system, I became more and more skeptical. They did not feel "right" to me, but I wasn't sure why.
Then I happened to come across a great article by Ian Yates titled "Life Beyond 960px: Designing for Large Screens" which introduced me to the term "Screen Real Estate". Prior to that, I did some deeper research using rem units in CSS which was a fortunate coincidence. Suddenly I knew what felt wrong.
When talking about RWD we mostly talk about devices below the target width of our layouts. But what about larger screens? Most of you will agree that a non RWD website with a target width of 960px looks a bit odd or lost on such a screen. Things are becoming more obvious when we talk about people accessing our websites with a 60" TV. Sure, these TV sets will most likely still only have full HD resolution. But keep in mind that whoever sits in front of them is probably at least 4m/10f away from the screen.

34Grid is a Responsive Grid System based on "equally distributed columns" layout basis. In contrast to other great grid systems (@see bottom of page), 34Grid provides equally distributed columns for each row. (and also column complements for inequal distributions)
If you're already familiar with grid systems and responsive web design just create&download a bundle and see what is inside. Else you may start with resizing your browser window.
