After messing with Bootstrap for about 2 months, I gotta say that I really like it. it gives a base starting point for starting new websites, or creating new designs for current websites. Its easy to get the hang of, and to tweak up.

Some of the pluses are that it has basic javascript / jquery functionality included, with dropdown menus, accordions, tooltips, modal boxes, and more. It has multiple form layouts, for different form submissions, the buttons look awesome when you figure out how to create your own, and most of all they allow for responsive layout for multiple screen sizes which is a huge plus!

Some of the drawbacks I found were that it when you changed the width of the page / layout the media queries didnt update, but this can be fixed within adding your own media queries and or updating the existing ones.

All in all, I still believe that the bootstrap project is a great project that hit the web developers community and it truly does provide a huge helping hand in developing new sites, with all the basic functionality all websites need to have.

Way to team bootstrap! You did awesome in your creation

I did finally find one that I liked, and they produced the images really fast as well!

In my testing phrases I realized that that if I put a border radius on an element, a border on it, and also the gradient effect, in Internet Explorer it would show a square / rectangle box with the border radius outlined with the border color. What I ended up doing was just taking out the gradient effect for IE, and when you add a box-shadow effect it gives it a gradient effect without actually using the IE filters to use it
