I'm looking for a CSS framework to use for a long page website with heavy animations.

Check this site for an example.

My criteria for a good CSS framework is as follows (but by no means a requirement):

  • Has features for creating long page websites
  • Animation support
  • General ease of use (I don't want to type -moz, -webkit, -ms multiple times)
  • Employability (it's a bonus if you know that companies are using this framework as well)

Aside from CSS frameworks, you can suggest templating language if you believe it helps.

    That example does not strike me as a long website, it's approx. 3 browser heights.

The page you give as an example uses (feel free to add what I missed)

The choice of a CSS framework is almost an impossible one to make objectively. The best I can go is give you a big list and add that I like Bootstrap.

Templating language definitely helps. Especially to shield you from using vendor specific prefixes. As far as I know, developers of CSS frameworks usually use templating languages themselves. Twitter Bootstrap originally used Less, now there is also a Sass version. Both Sass and Less are a good choice. Pick the one that is supported by your CSS framework. I prefer Sass.

Have you tried responsive or bootstrap via http://www.initializr.com? It is very fast to load and many companies do use it because it is cross-browser compatible. (They list companies on the site)
