    The CSS Grid video by Rachel Andrew was very helpful but I'm left with the same question I have with all other new CSS technologies; who's designing and developing sites twice, one to use current technologies (i.e. frameworks) and another to implement new CSS features like CSS grid? The suggestion to use CSS feature support to implement CSS grid for only users who can handle it seems odd. Why would I layout my site in a framework then redo it with CSS grid? If I can get my layout to work in a framework what's the point of CSS grid? Why invest the extra time and effort? I don't mean to sound argumentative, I genuinely wonder who'd doing that sort fo thing and how to you justify the extra development and over-engineering?

      Grid for responsive layouts and I'll hack together a simple static layout using floats for IE (I don't bother with grid sytems / CSS frameworks unless it's spec'd). It adds maybe 1/2 an hour of dev time to a normal brochure site.

    Nice! Is there something similar for JavaScript?
