Golden Grid System
Golden Grid System (GGS) splits the screen into 18 even columns. The leftmost and rightmost columns are used as the outer margins of the grid, which leaves 16 columns for use in design.
Semantic Grid System
The Semantic Grid System is a modern approach to the CSS grid. It allows you to set column and gutter widths, choose the number of columns, switch between pixels and percentages, and achieve responsive layouts, all without any unsemantic .grid_x classes in your markup. By default it’s powered by LESS.js, but also supports SCSS and Stylus.
Columnal CSS Grid System
Columnal makes responsive web design a little easier. It is 1140px wide, but since it is fluid, will respond to the width of most browsers. If the browser gets thin enough, the site will change to a mobile-friendly layout.
Simple Grid is prepared for 4 distinct ranges of screen size: screens 720px, screens > than 985px, and screens > than 1235px. So people visiting your site will receive a layout that’s tuned to the size of their browser window. Say goodbye to horizontal scrollbars.
1140PX CSS Grid
The 1140 grid fits perfectly into a 1280 monitor. On smaller monitors it becomes fluid and adapts to the width of the browser.
Just a simple calculator to help turn your PSD pixel perfection into the start of your responsive website.
320 and Up
With 320 and up framework you can build flexible layouts that respond and react to desktop, mobile and tablet screens.
It is a 12-column flexible grid that can scale out to an arbitrary size (defined by the max-width of the row) that’s also easily nested, so you can build out complicated layouts without creating a lot of custom elements. And when the Grid isn’t enough for your site, it just gets out of the way.

Nice collection, but so many above frameworks have many flaws, we already tested those.
So we prefer IVORY Framework is the best one than many other frameowrks.
Nice finds, thanks. Grids are always useful when i work on projects.
Great tools.Thanks for sharing
Really cool, Thanks a million, found a tool that checks the current popular phone and tablet screen sizes, http://digitalgeek.com.au/responsive_website_design/
Wow! Can’t believe that there are so many grids out there! Do they really get used? I tend to use a fluid grid layout in Dreamweaver rather than hash up a framework.
