Advantages of Mobile-first Approach in DMXzone Bootstrap 3:

  • Fully visual and responsive smart design - With the DMXzone Bootstrap 3 Grid floating panel it's all fully visually done and no hand-coding is required for any action while you create your design. From the greatly useful floater you can choose all the options you need and in a mouse click they'll appear in the grid.
