    Because "using as little" as you need means you are still including a convoluted stylesheet into your markup, 80% of which isn't being used. I think Bootstrap is a solution for some when it comes to prototyping, but I don't think any serious coder/designer would ever use it for client work.

      I'm pretty sure you can just output the components/markup you need, though?

        Yeah, I mainly use it for the grid. In past versions you could customize exactly what pieces of bootstrap you want to use.

        Bootstrap and Foundation both have customizers. Foundation's Sass version lists every component as an @import statement, so it's really easy to pick just the stuff you want (e.g., the grid, forms).

        Which is to say, yeah, the good frameworks are modular, which means you can strip them down very easily.
